    Richtig ist: "Kennen Sie Lübeck?" = Do you know Lübeck? = Have you ever been to Lübeck?

    Hello,

    wissen = to know facts:

    Wissen Sie, wo Lübeck ist? - Do you know where Lübeck is?
    B: Ja, ich weiß wo Lübeck ist: In Norddeutschland.
    Ich weiß, dass Paris die Hauptstadt von Frankfreich ist. - I know that Paris is the capital of France.

    The verb wissen expresses that you've heard these twons, but you don't know them personally, you've never been there.

    BUT:
    Kennen Sie Paris? Kennen Sie Lübeck?

    A: Ja, ich kenne Paris. Ich habe die Stadt schon oft besucht. - I know Paris, I've visitied this twon many times.

    kennen always requires an accusative object.
