Photo of the River TraveAmongst the green spaces within the city of Lubeck, the Stadtpark (City Park) stands out and offers the perfect spot to relax away from the heart of the city. Close to Lubeck city centre, Stadtpark lies within the St. Gertrud area and is also home to the Volksfestplatz, where a number of events take place each year, including the city's annual fairground and circus.

Also popular and full of colourful planting is Lubeck's Schulgarten (School Garden), where many themed gardens offer plantings of seasonal colours, ranging from springtime bulbs to dramatic summer flowerbeds. Here are Lubeck's two main parks and gardens.

City Park (Stadtpark)
