Christel Obenaus

I am a true Lubeck girl, and a German Tourist Guide Association certified guide. I have had the pleasure of showing people around Lubeck since 2010. Having travelled extensively on all continents and living abroad for 22 years, I returned to Lubeck in 2003. I do classical, culinary and themed walks around Lubeck; I slip into traditional medieval and 19th-century costume to take the visitor back in time.
I also do ghost tours at night time. I can offer day trips on pleasure boats, tours including traditional German lunch or tours around beautiful areas near Lubeck, including the seaside resort of Travemunde or the fairy-tale water castle in Schwerin, also known as the Neuschwanstein of the North.
