Lubeck, Germany Hamburg Lübeck Airport is mostly used by fliers heading to Hamburg. Considering Lübeck is far closer, and is a Unesco World Heritage site sometimes described as the "Venice of the Baltic", this is somewhat surprising.
Lübeck, Germany, is the next-most charming small town ever (after Bruges). It was head of the Hanseatic League, and thus has old salt and grain storage houses. Its specialty is marzipan, since almonds were brought here from the Middle East. Wonderful museum in the double-spired city gate! And - read "Buddenbrooks", by Thomas Mann, which is set here.
