Lübeck Travel Tip:
Lip-smacking delights await at Lübeck's Marzipan Land. Don't worry if you haven't got a sweet tooth though – there's lots to learn about the history of marzipan, how it's made and the many different styles and flavors. Art lovers won't be alone in marveling at a marzipan reproduction of Da Vinci's Last Supper. It measures 20m² and weighs in at one and a half tons. There's also a marzipan violin that can actually be played, complete with edible sheet music! A dress consisting of 25,000 marzipan sweets has even made it into the Guinness Book of Records. There's not much here that isn't marzipan – brightly colored frogs, red and white lighthouses, succulent-looking shrimps, German sausages and a mediterranean fruit cart packed with lemons, oranges, strawberries and melons. Visitors are also welcome to create their own marzipan models. Open daily 10am - 6pm with free admission.
