This is where Bernd Notkes original Dance Macabre was. It was ruined during WW II but is now pictured in stained glass windows. Also the astronomical clock and the falken bells are interesting. Composer Dietrich Buxtehude is buried here.

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?
