...Are you a bookworm? Then you’ve come to the right place. Our book shops don’t only have the latest fiction and non-fiction. You will also find special themes, including life on the Baltic, Lübeck, the northern German states of Schleswig-Holstein and Mecklenburg, or the history of the Hanseatic League and its seafarers. Or you can discover our regional crime authors, whose stories play out in and around Lübeck. Keep an eye on our event calendar for interesting authors’ readings and book presentations at your bookstore.
Other highlights for bookworms include children’s books, art, photography, architecture, design, and music. Lübeck is home to a renowned university for music, which gives the downtown area a special flair. This also explains the high quality of our street artists – a typical cultural attribute of our city, together with the concerts and gigs in bars and pubs. A night on the town should definitely include a stop at Hüxstraße. Be sure to stop by the small professional theater on our street. The pieces shown here focus on the madness of everyday life.
Many artists have found their professional home at the “Hüx”, or have chosen our street as their preferred location for exhibitions. It is worth your while to visit a vernissage or two. In addition to viewing and purchasing artwork here, you can also get just the right hand-crafted frame for paintings and drawings. There is also a large selection of artistic gift articles. We even have a gold plating workshop in our midst.
The mix of trade and artistic culture gives our shopping street its unique flair. So, be sure to plan some extra time for your shopping trip!
