Willkommen-in-germany: Das Holstentor from 1464, emblem of the city of Lübeck, Schleswig-Holstein, Northern Germany. Fun fact: Lübeck is famous for its marzipan. According to local legend, marzipan was first made here, possibly in response either to a military siege of the city or a famine. The story is that the town ran out of all food except stored almonds and sugar, which were then used to make loaves of marzipan “bread”. Others think that marzipan was invented in Persia hundreds of years before. The best known producer is Niederegger, a popular tourist destination, especially at Christmas time, when Germans buy and eat the most marzipan. Marzipan tag.
