J. G. Niederegger GmbH & Co. KG is a producer of marzipan and sweets. It is based in Lübeck, Germany.

Niederegger was founded by Johann Georg Niederegger on 1 March 1806[1] in Lübeck and is since known for their marzipan for about 200 years. The company is a family-owned limited private partnership.

Niederegger marzipan is classed as 100% marzipan and contains much less sugar in comparison to other marzipan makers.[citation needed]

In the town center of Lübeck, the always-crowded[citation needed] Café Niederegger offers a café, a shop for Niederegger sweets, and a marzipan museum on its upper floors.
