Lübeck

We took advantage of a clear day to go on a day-trip to Lübeck and visit this old Hanseatic League city, which is listed on the UNESCO World Heritage list.

We strolled through its lovely medieval streets and its Christmas market and tasted the specialty of the town, marzipan. Writers Heinrich and Thomas Mann and Willy Brandt, former mayor of West Berlin and chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany were natives of Lübeck. Günter Grass lived a few kilometres out of town and kept an office/secretariat in the old town which can be visited.


Nous avons profité d’une journée ensoleillée pour visiter la ville hanséatique de Lübeck, inscrite au patrimoine mondial de l’humanité.

Nous avons déambulé dans ses ruelles médiévales, visité son marché de Noël et goûté la spécialité de la ville, le massepain.
Les écrivains Heinrich et Thomas Mann ainsi que l’ancien maire de Berlin-Ouest et chancelier de la République fédérale d’Allemagne Willy Brandt étaient natifs de Lübeck. Günter Grass a vécu à quelques kilomètres de la ville mais y avait son bureau qui peut être visité.
