Friedrich passageway (also known as Friedrich town) – is a unique place in downtown Klaipėda (Tiltų 26a, by the old market). According to historic documents, during the rule of Friedrich III, on June 19-29, 1692 this place received official permission given by the citizens to be called Friedrich town (Friedrichsstadt); this permission was based on the act passed in 1639. On June 9, 1707 Friedrich town received its own coat of arms. One side features a male figure with a wreath of oak leaves and the other side contains the intertwined initials FR (Friedrich Rex – King Friedrich) placed under a crown.
Here you might find yourself asking a question, “Is this really Lithuania?” Once you enter this cozy courtyard, you will feel as if you are on a small street in a Western European city, ready to sit down and relax, to try freshly prepared fish, to sip wine or coffee. Our hospitable staff is always ready to fulfill your wishes!
In 2006 the new owner began major re-construction work with a purpose of re-creating the Friedrich town and creating restaurants of a different caliber.
