Did you know that the city of Lübeck, Germany (founded in 1143 aka a billion times older than Vancouver) is a UNESCO World Heritage Site? I totally did. Okay, maybe not, but as of last weekend I learned that. Also, it’s the marzipan capital of Germany, possibly the world. You can learn about and eat all things marzipan at the famous marzipan chain called Niederreger Lübeck. They even have a museum.
On my first trip to Lübeck, which is only a 40 minute train ride north east on the regional trains from Hamburg, I didn’t go to a single museum, but I did eat marzipan, drink a delicious iced macchiato, sit at a café, walk until I couldn’t walk no more and basically, had a great time. I will be back for sure and next time I’ll learn all about the history, marzipan culture and more. In the meantime, here are my photographic impressions after a first, lovely visit.
