Our tips for savouring the delights of Lübeck

What would a holiday in a town be without immersing yourself in the regional cuisine? Numerous small, upmarket restaurants and cafés await you in Lübeck’s Old Town streets. Here you can get your day in Lübeck off to a relaxed start over a tasty breakfast or brunch. A fish roll on the redesigned Drehbrückenplatz right on the Trave is the perfect snack between meals. And the best place to spend the afternoon coffee hour is in one of Lübeck’s magical cafés at the heart of the Old Town with a good view of the World Heritage site. How about a piece of original Lübeck marzipan cake? And when dusk falls in Lübeck’s alleys and courtyards, you can sit in the candlelight of an Old Town restaurant and replay the day’s events. To help you to know where you would absolutely like to spend a moment of gourmet delight, we have put together some tips here for your culinary Lübeck experience. Take a look inside!


Lübeck has been permitted to call itself a “fair trade city” since 2011. Numerous cafés and restaurants, hotels and around 90 retailers are already participating and offering fair trade products. Here you can find fair trade fashion, wine, fruit juice, coffee, tea or chocolate. The title was awarded by the Transfair Association which also gives its seal of approval to fairly traded products.
