About Me

***currently travelling in Ireland before I will move to Cologne (Köln) in April - so unfortunately unable to host until then***


the perfect sunset :D


I'm Lukas and I'm original from Lübeck-Travemünde (in north of Germany) but I'm living in Hamburg already for about 3 years.
I live in a flatshare with two flatmates who are open minded and also like to travel.

Especially during summer I go quite often home to Travemünde for sailing at weekends. I already took some surfers with me so if you like sea and beaches it could be possible to go with me. The UNESCO world heritage city Lübeck is also close by.

Otherwise I like to discover cafés to find good coffee and cake spots around the world :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I had my first couchsurfing experience in Dublin in November 2013. Then I surfed a lot in Canada, the States and Europe.

Currently I have my own (shared) flat - with two flatmates - and I like to host couchsurfers because it's a great community!
