Travel Tips for Lübeck
This is funny. As we made our way back from the town, while crossing by the St. Marien kirche, somewhere opposite to the devil's statue, we came across this pit from which light was coming out. The entire area was dark and so it really attracted the attention. I looked down, peeped through and found that some kind of cooking was going on. I really felt hungry : )
MARZIPAN.....AUS LIEBE.....SINCE 1806
There is a real MARZIPAN-SALON in Lübeck where you can endulge yourself and taste the wonderful real Lübecker MARZIPAN (I don't like it....) which seems to be the best in the world!!
Of course you can also buy MARZIPAN here which must be a nice present, a sweet souvenir....

On the second floor is a MUSEUM....do have a look there, it is a revelation.....
St. Jakobi church
Lubeck's church towers are a landmark by themselves in this city. The spires of St. Jakobi church add to the charming skyline, and the church itself is worth a visit for several reasons.
The church was built around 1300, and since the middle ages it has been the church of the seamen. In one of the chapels there is a life boat of the Pamir, a sailing ship that sank 1957 with only six surviving seamen of 86 total. This chapel is national and International Seafaring Memorial.
The steeples are also quite unique, a blend of two different styles - a high Gothic roof with a baroque base. There was discussion and disagreement about the style of the steeple when it was being rebuilt during the 17th century, so a compromise was met.
This church suffered relatively little damage during the world war II. The two 15th century organs are intact, and there are often organ recitals here as well as regular music during services. The altar dates from 1717, and the bronze font from 1466. Colorful paintings are also prominent inside the church, and there is a beautiful clock (seen in the 1st photo).
These were the city of Lubeck gates, which were ones a part of the local castle, destroyed as early as in 1225. It is even named after the German word for castle, which is Burg.

At the end of the footpathzone...
At the end of the footpathzone you are at Kohlmarkt. If you walk right you come to the Holstentor, straight on is another main street, where you come to the Dom and other nice buildings. So, this was just a very very little and quick guide through Lübeck, but there´s one you must do: walk through the little side streets. There are many very beautiful houses and little inner-parks. Although I lived such a long time here, I always see something new when I walk there.
