It is not easy to build such a high building out of bricks. But they did it with the Marienkirche in Lübeck. The church is so high, that the voices of the people are barely heard, even if 2000 of them are singing. In the...More

Going around in Lübech the Marienkirche is absolutly worth a visit. There are still leftovers from the damage the church had during the WWII.

Just in front of the Rathaus, a little devil sitting next to the entrance, welcoming all the tourists to have a photo with him. The church was heavily destroyed in the WWII and you will see some documentation inside the church. It felt very calm...More

we had read the story about this church, and "the death from Lubeck" the big demolition in 1942, so of course we had to visit. But after entering we all had the same feeling this church is a little scary, because it contains in our...More

The marienkirche is well worth a visit if you like looking at amazing architecture. The best time to go in my opinion is when the Christmas markets are on as it holds a craft market inside, but it's impressive at any time really.

This tall, huge church in itself is magnificent though not very ornate. Do not miss the church bell damaged in World War bombing, lying inside the church, towards the left of the entrance.

Gothic Church with nice windows. Rebuilt. The outside belies the beautiful interior. Worth a visit. Takes less than an hour

There are many different views of the church from outside, some beautiful, some quite uninspiring, but none of them prepare you for it’s stunning Gothic interior. It’s simply splendid and worth setting aside a reasonable length of time for a visit. There is an amazing...More

Don't miss this church. It was heavily damaged during the war but completely rebuilt. I was surprised by how high and beautiful it is. Don't miss the stained glass windows of the dance macabre. Something weirdly creepy and rarely found in a church.

Yes, I believe there is but we spent our time in Lubeck walking. Look up the telephone number of the Tourist Office and give them a call. They are helpful. Whitebeard83

Sorry, I have just visited the building. Have you tried the Tourist Office or approached the church itself?

A couple of Euros, if I remember right.
