    Hi d2mac. Surely the Frogster will stay in Luebeck Germany for few more days and you may find some time during the festive season to take a few more shots Some ideas:

    Buddenbrookhaus
    Travemuende
    Priwallhafen ( Maritimes Denkmal Passat )

    Would be uber cool

    Very scary looking city gate, curious to know who was the enemy they were protecting from? Were they from the north or from the south?

    Most importantly the gate serves as inspiration for the many brands of this Lübeck specialty... but I will let D2mac explain about that...

    Yepp, for unknown reasons the Lübeck candy makers got famous for their marzipan. :)

    There are still several larger and smaller companies making Marzipan, the best known is the Niederegger brand from Gripmasters photo.
    You will find products of this brand all over Germany and the company i work for is using this as a giveaway for customers and suppliers.
    Its well received all over the world.

    The Lübeck Marzipan Flagstore has a rather large exhibition of things made of marzipan, i hope i can deliver a good photo of that later.

    Tourists on guided tours in Lübeck are often also guided to the different marzipan makers (but not every guided tour ends at one of the well known ones). :D

    And yes, i will do a trip to Travemünde and picture some large ships! :)

    Sorry-not for unknown, for good reasons IMHO. No Christmas without Marzipan from Lübeck!

    Re: Poorman's Frogman DW-295 World Tour

    OK, last night the rain went and cold dry air came in.
    So today we have frost but nice and clear weather.
    Lets see some landscape!

    First i did what gripmaster did, climbed the highest mountain around.
    It fobidden to drive to the top so i had to let my car in the valley and have a walk to the 81m peak. 8-)



    On top of the hill there is an observation deck:

    The place was somewhat crowded. after more then one week of storm and rain everybody wants to see the sun.

    So lets see what is the landscape from the top:

    The white dot on the horizon is a ferry to scandinavia which is starting from Lübeck.





    Frogster on the frosty steps of the observation deck:

    Frogster observing landscape:


    The next tour leads to the beach as promised.
    First a rather flat and sandy beach in Boltenhagen, ferry still in the back.
    This beach is used for bathing during summer. It our Repulse Bay. 8-)





    Next stop is a rather wild beach with cliffs which is most common here.
    Since there are a lot of stones on the beach and in the water, go swimming is not so joyfull.
    The stones come out of the cliffs which are washed away in a rate of 30cm/year.
    I follow a small creek down to sea level.




    Frogster in the wilderness:



    Frogster feeling like a big frog sitting on a stone in the creek shortly before the creek disappears in the salty sea.



    This way to the sea had a bad history since it was used for searchlight trucks in cold war times.
    They popped up every evening and searched for people who tried to swim to the west.
    Tha means that the way was constructed military style with concrete stuff they had hands-on.
    Today there are still decaying concrete piles laying around on the beach head.
