Lübeck marzipan – Sweet Temptation of the North

Nowhere is Schleswig-Holstein’s sweet tooth more apparent than in Lübeck, home of the world-famous Lübeck marzipan.

Once the preserve of the wealthy and the header_Marzipan_SH_imago60377582h_656x492 powerful, the marzipan is still largely produced by hand. At the Niederegger Marzipan Salon in Lübeck you can learn about the long journey that this almond confectionery has made over the centuries, from its origins in the East to a Hanseatic town in northern Germany. Because marzipan wasn’t invented in Lübeck. Just perfected.
