When thinking of Luebeck you undoubtely think of Marzipan, too.
In the 16th century it was used as a remedy and pharmacies only were allowed to produce it. No need to say that only nobility was able to afford it anyway. It was no earlier then the late 18th century when marzipan at last made its way to bakeries and pastry shops and then became affordable.
The Niederegger House in Luebeck and its marzipan are well-known across the world. Visitors can indulge in the many marzipan specialities either in the café, which opened its doors in 1806, or in the shop. If you want to learn more about this marvellous almond and sugar speciality visit the Marzipan salon on the second floor. The museum shows the long journey marzipan has made of a period of many centuries from its oriental origins to the Hanseatic city on the river Trave.
