Travelers looking for a healthy dose of culture in Lübeck might consider the Klassik Altstadt Hotel. Owner Hilke Flebbe has cleverly branded the hotel, Das Theater Hotel, and promotes a variety of live performances by offering special packages and tours. Wanderers through the narrow alleys of the old town, will readily spot the Altstadt's pale yellow front.

Though its façade portrays a distinctly contemporary establishment, inside, the 28 guest rooms are styled with classic romantic accents, including high ceilings, delicate lace curtains, and dark wood furniture. One evening around 6pm, we found Frau Flebbe busily looking after a group of theater-goers who were enjoying a pre-show cocktail hour in one of the private party rooms. She took a few moments to describe her concept of promoting theater and culture by offering special packages: for example, one of her arrangements includes two nights accommodations, a cocktail, breakfast buffet, a tour of city theaters, a ticket for a show, and dinner at the Theaterbistro. Cost is 299 DM ($162) per person. Each guestroom is equipped with a phone, fax and modem connection, cable TV, radio and alarm clock. Two of the double rooms have bath tubs and the rest have showers. The entire complex was last renovated in 1997.
