“Lovely building”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

We were lucky enough to be in the square to hear the bells, it was an unexpected pleasure, we visited the interior of the building with a local guide who explained the history and use of the building, it was very interesting, the frescos inside were really nice, and it was nice to see how civic minded he old merchants of the town were. A little sad, at he same time inspiring.

“A must go in Lübeck: the oldest social service still in operation (800 years)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

An awesome place, it has served for 800 years, forst as a hospital and then, since the 15th century till today, as a residence for the frail and elderly. A prime example of civic mutuality, run by the city council, iin the original buildings from the 13th to 16th centuries. The buildings alone are impressive, but the documentation about social services is really unusual.
