With its patrician houses and numerous red-brick Gothic monuments, the "Queen of the Hanseatic League" is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Surrounded by water, most of the old centre is now reserved for pedestrians and cyclists. For centuries Lübeck has been famous for its cellars, used to mature wines imported from France, and for its almond marzipan.
