Lübeck : Michelin's recommendations
With its fine patrician houses and numerous Gothic, Renaissance and neo-Classical monuments, the old capital of the Hanse, now a World Heritage site, is still the most dynamic German city in the Baltic. Surrounded by water, the old town is largely traffic-free and used mainly by pedestrians and cyclists. For centuries Lübeck has been famous for its marzipan and for its cellars which are used to mature wines imported from France.
