Today, Lubeck still basks in the glory of the Hanseatic merchants, who showed off their wealth by lavishly decorating their homes and churches. Today Lubeck is a UNESCO World Heritage site. On another note, not many people are aware of this, but Lubeck is famous as the world capital of marzipan!
The Altstadt or old city is wonderful to explore on foot. It is surrounded by the Trave River, which itself is inter-connected with canals, giving the sensation of being on an island. Most Germans will know the famous Holstentor, a Lubeck landmark, which used to be the entrance to the city. The Rathaus and Rathausplatz (city hall and city square) trace their origin to 1230, but have been rebuilt several times since. However, the mixed Gothic and Romanesque architecture is a wonderful sight. While at the Rathaus, don’t miss sampling or buying some marzipan at the famous Niederegger shop nearby.
