The City of Seven Spires
The appealing medieval town of Lubeck is self contained, separated from newer parts of the city by a canal and river that once doubled as a moat.
Within this precinct are some 1,300 houses, churches, and courtyards protected as a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Local lore has it that Lubeck is also the original home of marzipan, a serendipitous discovery during a siege, when the town ran out of flour and ground up nuts to use in making a bread substitute. Hot tip for those with a sweet tooth – Café Neideregger is said to make the best, and they have been doing so since 1806.
Enter the city of Lübeck through this 15th century gate, the town’s most famous landmark.
Indulge in world-class marzipan at this 200-year-old candy factory and museum.
