The traditional pub of Luebeck
About us / Im alten Zolln
W elcome to Im alten Zolln, the traditional pub on the historic central island of Luebeck. As a historic institution since 1589 we are the oldest existing pub in Luebeck. Between Semperoper 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.
“Great inn. Cozy … quaint … just great. Friendly service. Good food, good beer. We recommend”
“Traditional restaurant with a large selection of beer on tap and a variety of dishes. Pleasant atmosphere; LIVE music on different days.”
“Very old ambience, very cuddly and the food tastes great! Establishment of earlier (positive). Staff very nice!”
six classic fresh draught beers
A Nordic brewing tradition for over 160 years. A tart and dry, refreshing Friesian. Brewed with soft brewing water.
120 year old recipe. Particularly strong, tangy flavour. Stressed yeast note and top-fermented profile.
(seasonal) – Refreshing quaffable Maybock as the first herald of spring. Followed by the malty dark Urbock during the transitional period of the year. The strong Winterbock keeps you warm during the winter.

The history of Im alten Zolln
1552 The old construction of the Muehlengate
1858 Neighbourhood of the inner Muehlengate
Today the Muehlenstreet looks entirely different. The Zolln is the last remaining building of the big Muehlenconstruction with several huge gates, which were removed in 1861. It reminds us of the golden age of Luebeck; the former queen of the Hanseatic League. If you look closely you can see the Zolln hiding in the left corner behind the trees.
From 1903 to now
Im alten Zolln is still a social staple. Newcomers and natives alike develop interesting topics over a delicious beer. Even without beer the mood is always lively. Hence, the Zolln has never become something new, neither inside nor outside. Instead it continues to be a melting pot of intellectuality and culture. It has always been more than just an ordinary pub. We are a part of living history, continuing the tradition started so many years ago.
