In XIII-XVII centuries in Northern Europe was created an alliance of German cities to protect free traders and merchants from the power of feudal lords and piracy. About 200 cities and towns were members of the famous Hanseatic League. Lübeck was the largest center of the union. City remained free until 1937 when it lost his status after Nazis came to power.

Lübeck has a great old town, which was partly damaged during the bombing, but was rebuilt. Lubeck kept the spirit of the old Hanseatic town so well that many of its historic buildings in the old town listed as UNESCO World Heritage Site. Old city located on the island, which is very convenient .

On the other side of the street find "a marzipan building". Niederegger candy is one of the most famous and popular in Germany, we love them too. Local marzipan manufactory  was founded by Georg Niederegger 200 years ago, but generally Marzipan came to the city from Asia and at first was sold in pharmacies as a tonic. In the house-museum you can buy a variety of souvenir candy. On the second floor there is a small exhibition of products made ​​of marzipan.
