Discover Luebeck from the waterside!

Take a tour with our original Hamburg harbor launch boat
                       „Adolf Stuehff" 
and the carefully restored historical "senate" launch boat
                       „Gaby Stuehff" 
and experience the original way of passenger traffic.

Enjoy the incomparable charme of historical harbour launch boats and the fascination of unusual perspectives of the city of Luebeck. The snug and rustic atmosphere on our boats will make your trip around the historical city center of Luebeck - named "Queen of the Hanseatic League" in the middle ages - an unforgettable experience.

As an official UNESCO World Heritage Site Lübeck is a town of interesting contrasts - old and new buildings form a charming co-existence, modern enterprises are being set up behind very old facades.

Our live moderation on board will give you lots of interesting information about Luebeck's history, buildings and surroundings on the one hour trip around the city.

Our historical launch boats are made for any type of weather:

-   as open boats in summertime,
-   covered with a tarpaulin with windows on rainy days
-   covered and heated in winter time

With us you will always get the best seats and best view!

Come aboard, we are looking forward to your visit!

How to find us

On our map you will find the so-called "Lover's Bridge" ("Liebesbruecke"). It was built in 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 3-5 minutes.

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