Five members of the British Club travelled to Lübeck to see the Christmas markets. We were fortunate because although it was quite cold we had plenty of sunshine. We were really impressed by the Kunsthandwerkermarkt in the Heiligen-Geist Hospital, one of the best I personally have ever seen. Thanks to E.B., who knows the city like the back of her hand, we were also able to take a peek at the Schiffergesellschaft and the Thomas and Heinrich Mann Museum. We also paid a quick call at the Niederegger marzipan shop which has an incredible assortment at this time of the year. Lübeck calls itself the “Weihnachtsstadt des Nordens” and rightly so. There is much variety including a medieval market and the fairytale forest. Definitely worth a visit at this time of the year!
