s. The station building was designed by Fritz Klingholz, and replaced the previous, outdated building.

Lübeck Hbf is a Reiterbahnhof, or station with a reception building laid out as a bridge "riding" over the tracks. Its reception building spans a total of 10 tracks with four platforms. A special feature is its wide wooden steps leading down to the platforms. The station was recently modernised and completely electrified, and is now fully connected with Germany's electric railway network.

The old Hauptbahnhof

The forerunner of today's Hauptbahnhof was built by the LBE in 1851, on the wall peninsula near the Holstentor
The Holsten Gate is a city gate marking off the western boundary of the old center of the Hanseatic city of Lübeck. This Brick Gothic construction is one of the relics of Lübeck’s medieval city fortifications and the only remaining city gate, except for the Citadel Gate...

. Initially, it had only one platform, but due to later expansion work ended up with four platforms. With increasing traffic, operations became problematic, as the trains crossed a main road directly after leaving the station, and the tracks needed to pass over several small streams. Upon the commissioning of the new Hauptbahnhof in 1908, the old station building finally lost its function.

After being put to various other uses (including the housing of the Harbour Railway administration), the old station building was demolished in 1934, as part of the transformation of the Holstentorplatz.

The origins of today's Hauptbahnhof

As it was evident by the turn of the twentieth century that the old station building was too small, a new location was sought.
The problematic layout of the Lübeck inner city, which is situated on an island, had already caused great difficulties for the construction and operation of the original station. Thus, the new station site needed to be just outside the inner city to be able to solve these problems.

A suitable location was finally found in the Rethteich Meadows, a few hundred metres east of the inner city, near the St. Lawrence Church. The new station, built to a design by Fritz Klingholz, was finally opened in 1908, and the tracks slewed to the new location.

 Merkur, which ran from Stuttgart to Copenhagen.

The branch line to Segeberg, which had its platform next to the train hall, had its passenger traffic withdrawn on 26 September 1964, and was closed on 31 December 1967.

In 1967, on the occasion of the visit of Shah Reza Pahlavi to the city of Lübeck, the station was restored. The modifications then carried out corresponded with the spirit of the times but were later perceived as being of dubious aesthetic value. They were removed during the 2003 renovations. Amongst other things, the passage to the station wing was closed, windows bricked up and the interior of the train hall strengthened. Also installed during the Bundesbahn era was the metal luggage bridge, which obstructed the view of the station from the railway bridge.

 to invest in Lübeck. Thus, the Lübeck Hbf of the late 1990s was still equipped with hand operated semaphore signals, lack of care for the station building had become apparent, and Lübeck had become the largest German city not served by an electrified railway line. Additionally, the station wing looked down at heel, after its restaurant had had to close. By 2000, the entire building was completely outdated and no longer met the requirements of modern rail operations.

The turnaround in the policy of the Deutsche Bahn for the Lübeck area came in 2003. In that year, all the semaphore signals were replaced with centralized Ks- Signals. At the same time, work began on a large-scale reconstruction of the station, to modernize and prepare it for future electrification. The most important modifications were completed on 20 July 2007.

Electrification of the Lübeck–Hamburg and Lübeck–Lübeck-Travemünde Strand railways, and therefore also of Lübeck Hbf, was begun in late 2006 and finished in December 2008. On 1 October 2008, the power was turned on.

The reconstruction work

In 2003, after much hesitation, the Deutsche Bahn initiated a comprehensive modernisation of Lübeck Hbf. In carrying out the modernisation, the DB was required to observe rules of heritage building preservation. The work involved the complete reconstruction of the reception building and train hall, and the basic restoration of the pedestrian bridge.

In addition to general upgrades, the construction work was as follows:
  • Demolition and reconstruction of all four platforms.
  • Dismantling of the train hall and subsequent reconstruction. In the process, about 70 percent of the old steel beams were reused. The train hall roof was fitted with stronger glazing, and the overall structure was stabilised by new steel double arches. At the same time, steel structural units, described as arches and depicted in the photo at right, were also installed. They are necessary for structural reasons, because there is a transit line between two of the platform tracks. At that point, the roof weights could not be forwarded directly into the ground but are diverted via the arches. This transit line is not needed at the moment and remains non electrified to this day. It is used exclusively for the stabling of railcars.
  • Installation of a modern light and speaker system
  • Demolition of the pedestrian bridge and subsequent renewal with the greatest possible reuse of the original steel components. In the process, the beam was raised by 60 centimetres (23.6 in), to facilitate the electrification of the station.
  • Reglazing of windows on the hall side of the pedestrian bridge that had been bricked up in the 1960s.
  • Construction of a second staircase to each platform.
  • Installation of a lift on each platform for a maximum of 20 persons.
  • Refurbishment of the reception building.
  • Demolition of the redundant post office bridge.
  • Fitting of digital destination displays to all platforms.
  • Installation of a double-sided train departure board in the lobby.
  • Construction of the new travel center in the north wing (carried out only in 2009).

Most work was completed by 20 July 2007. The official inauguration took place on 13 December 2008, to commemorate the station's centenary. Seven businesses moved into premises on the pedestrian bridge, including a fast food restaurant

, a bookshop and a pretzel baker. The old luggage bridge was removed in April 2008. With the relocation of the travel center to the north wing of the building - establishing a passage to the main hall - construction was practically completed. In the south wing, which already had a connection with the main hall, is intended in future to host further businesses.

A further construction project, not yet completed by 2009, is the conversion of the ground floor of the north station wing, which has been empty for some years, because of the closure of the restaurant, and later the nightclub, formerly located in that wing. The basement is now occupied by the travel centre.

In the immediate vicinity of the Hauptbahnhof, adjacent to the station forecourt, is the Handelshof, an expressionistic former office building, the renovation of which was completed in 2009.


For a long time, Lübeck was the largest German city without an electrified rail connection. From the 1970s, the city sought to be connected to the electric rail network. However, the initial response was that Lübeck was located in the zone boundary area, right on the border with East Germany, and later the Deutsche Bahn had a policy against it.

This policy stance finally ended in 2005, when a contract for electrification was officially signed. In it, the electrification of the Hamburg-Lübeck-Travemünde railway was agreed.

Apart from its assistance to passenger traffic, the integration of Lübeck into the electric rail network was particularly beneficial to the ever-increasing freight traffic between the Lübeck ports and Hamburg. The electrification contract included duplication of the section of line between Bad Schwartau Waldhalle and Lübeck-Kücknitz. As a source of electricity for the newly electrified line, a new substation was constructed in Lübeck-Genin, instead of the railway power lines that would otherwise have been required to connect the line with existing substations.

The new electrified line was energised on 1 October 2008, and officially commissioned on schedule on 14 December 2008.
