Marzipan Museum at Café Niederegger


Welcome to the Niederegger Marzipan Museum on the 2nd floor of Café Niederegger.

Lübeck’s secret landmark. Since its founding in 1806 Café Niederegger with its famous marzipan has become an institution. The wide range of more than 300 delicious products and tempting cakes invites to linger. To this day, the family company produces all the tasty products still us-ing its traditional recipe that starts with the pure almond and arrives at its unique flavour with the addition of a secret ingredient. The museum takes the visitor on a journey through the history of marzipan: Twelve life-sized marzipan figures and changing marzipan artwork explain the historical journey of the almond paste from the Orient to the city of Lübeck. A movie offers an exclusive insight into the Niederegger factory where traditional handwork is used to make marzipan delicacies. During the afternoons, a confectioner presents the fine art of moulding with marzipan.
