Full description

Lubeck is known for its iconic skyline, dominated by the seven towers of its five main churches, and also for its delicious Marzipan. Immerse yourself in local culture and get a taste of the “broken sweetness” of the cuisine in the Schleswig Holstein region in Northern Germany. Embark on a culinary adventure in Lubeck’s Old Town!

The 2,5-hour tour will begin in the heart of the historic Old Town where you will discover Hanseatic history, culture and heritage. You will see highlights such as St Mary’s Church (Marienkirche) and the Old Town Hall with its series of ornate arcades that date back to the 13th-century. Your fun-loving Private Guide will share interesting facts and anecdotes about the city and take you to 2 amazing venues, including 1 traditional restaurant and 1 patissiere.

During this exclusive food tasting tour you will discover the diverse flavors of local cuisine. On the menu you will find seafood, beef potatoes and other regional delicacies such as Fliederbeersuppe (elderberry soup), smoked Kieler Sprotten (European sprat) or the Lubecker National – a common stew made with pork belly, carrots, potatoes and onions. For a dessert you must try the famous Lubecker Marzipan and learn the original recipe! You will also be served 1 soda drink and 1 cup of tea or coffee.

Choose the 3,5-hour tour to learn more about the culinary preferences and traditions in Lubeck, such as the wintertime custom of kale eating, known as Grünkohlessen. During this tour you will visit 3 venues, including 2 traditional German restaurants where you can try the famous Gruenkohl with Kouchwirst (Kale and Sausage) or Labskaus. To make the experience even better, we will also treat you to a glass of cold German beer!

The 5-hour option is a fun and cultural food and beer tasting tour at 4 different venues (no patissiere). No matter if you’re a beer connoisseur or only an occasional drinker, you must try local beer when in Lubeck!

You will sample 8 different types of beer on this tour, including popular brands as well as regional and craft beers that represent the local passion for brewing.
