The beautiful medieval town of Lübeck is famed for its Brick Gothic architecture dating back to its time as the capital of the Hanseatic League, a powerful trading confederation. It's also thought to be the birthplace of marzipan. Founded in 1143 as a key port, the old town is contained on a small island in the River Trave. Take a stroll, admiring the imposing Holsten Gate and the ornate St Mary's Church and discovering the myriad of alleyways and courtyards. You’ll also pass by Buddenbrook House, dedicated to the town's famous sons, Heinrich and Thomas Mann, before visiting Café Niederegger for a taste of Lübeck's famous marzipan gateau.
