Here you will find specialist bookshops, second-hand bookshops, goldsmiths, jewellers and perfumeries. There is old and new, beautiful and strange, unique specimens and specialities.
With 120 shops, bars, cafés and restaurants spread over a length of only 517 metres, Hüxstraße is sure to put you in the mood for Christmas.
Equally popular are Fleischhauerstraßewhich has spruced itself up mightily in the last few months and Glockengießerstraße. A quick detour to the festively decorated Niederegger headquarters is not to be missed. This is where Lübeck marzipan was born. Here you can discover this delicious sweet in almost every flavour. Incidentally, the fir cones and nutcrackers are still made from traditional moulds dating back to 1850.
