How to find us

On our map you will find the so-called "Lover's Bridge" ("Liebesbruecke"). It was built from 2006-2007. As it is still quite new, you might not be able to find this bridge on your map. The bridge is situated opposite Luebeck's conservatory (Musikhochschule).
Please note that there may be only limited parking space available in the street "an der Obertrave".

Our recommendation:
Take your car to the multi-storey car park "Parkhaus am Holstentor", address: Possehlstrasse 1 (Ecke Wallstrasse) 23560 Luebeck.
There are signs to guide you to this car park.

Crossing the "Lover's bridge" situated behind this car park, you will arrive at our jetty within about 3-5 minutes.

Our office is situated at "An der Obertrave 14".

If you should wish to place a lover's lock on the bridge, you may purchase it (including engraving) at "An der Obertrave 13, Goldschmiede Yvonne Sterly".
