Top choice food in Lübeck

Lübeck’s mecca for marzipan lovers, the almond confectionery from Arabia, which has been made locally for centuries. Even if you’re not buying, the shop’s elaborate seasonal displays are a feast for the eyes. In its small museum, Marzipan-Salon, you’ll learn that in medieval Europe marzipan was considered medicine, not a treat. At the back there’s an elegant cafe.
