Well, we said goodbye to Brian and Heike today and headed north to Lubeck. Using our BordAtlas book (www.bordatlas.de) we found a great Stellplatz about 30 minutes walk from the town centre. (The new BordAtlas book is out on the 16th November so we’ll be placing our order with Vicarious books on our return to UK)
It was a camping spot by an indoor bowling park that only cost 9 euros per night including electric. We’ve been pleasantly surprised how busy the camping spots have been and there were about 15 units on site so we felt really safe.
As is usual for us, we took the long way round to the town until we stopped a lady and asked which way the Altstadt was. Success, as she understood what we were asking….and we understood her answer! With a wish to her to have a good weekend, we set off in the right direction checking out way points for the return journey.
We entered the town via the Burgtor, the old castle gate that dates back many centuries.
It is a beautiful town, but it is also famous for marzipan which was perfected by the town in the 19th Century. We visited the Niederegger patisserie and bought some for a present. The shop was heaving with customers, we’re not sure if the Christmas rush has begun or if it is always that busy! The picture below does not do the shop justice, it is well worth a visit.
Again, the old buildings were really pretty to see and the town needs more than a day spent there to do it justice.
