Lubeck may be best known as the town that refused to allow Adolf Hitler to campaign in it, but the restored German city features many noteworthy sights. Historical sights and references abound, including the fact that Lubeck was home to novelist Thomas Mann. Lubeck was well restored after it was bombed in 1942, so modern visitors can get a glimpse of its medieval mercantile environment. Also, because Lubeck is located on the Baltic, many may be pleasantly surprised by its variety of cuisine compared with the rest of Germany.
