Location and contact

Welcome to Im alten Zolln, the traditional pub in the historic city centre of Luebeck. As a historic institution since 1589 we are the oldest existing pub in Luebeck. Between opera and classic caricatures, meet people in our historical interior. We are a meeting place, a patron of musical events, friends of the german card game “Doppelkopf” and a home for literature. We sing, laugh, make music and most importantly chat.

We come here everytime in Lübeck. Doesn't feel "touristy", but instead very familiar. Carefully prepaired dishes. Genuinely service-minded staff. Small, so sometimes it can take some time to get your food.

It was a nice place for a late drink, very cosy and friendly. Not expensive, good for locals and turists.
