A must for anyone interested in arts and culture. Beautiful place, great collection of medieval church art, a wonderful place! And mostly always empty, it is the cities best kept secret!

Situated in a former convent this museum has a contemporary part, the Kunsthalle (which unless you are interested in contemporary art can safely be skipped) and the St Annen museum itself.

The St Annen Museum is based around the old cloister. It is split between the secular and the religious. On the first floor are displays of paintings, portraits, jewllery, recreated interiors, etc. These are mostly gifts of the burghers of Lubeck.

On the ground floor are the real masterpieces of the museum, consisting of sculptures, paintings and altar pieces from the Medieval and early renaissance periods. The main ones to look out for are the Memling altar piece, the statue of St George and the Dragon and stone carvings of the wise and foolish virgins.

The Kunsthalle and St Annen Museum are regarded as separate and so if you want entrance to both you should buy a combination ticket. However, the St Annen Museum is the more interesting part and would be better value spending money on the ticket just for this museum.

In Lubeck it can be reached by passing through the Holstentor and heading straight along the street in front of it, Holstenstrasse. This will lead on to Wahmstrasse and a street off this on the right hand side is St Annenstrasse.

This museum was my top priority in Lübeck and it exceeded my expectations. Frankly, I would have been happy with the museum if I had only seen the Memling altarpiece (absolutely gorgeous) but there was so much more to see and it was curated beautifully. Lots of medieval art on the ground floor and room after room of lovely things to look at upstairs - I spent about two hours there and enjoyed every minute.

The museum is definitely worth a visit just for the architecture inside.
If you want to study the entire collection you must be required to really like religous art 'as most of the exhibition is alter pieces and the like from churches of the middle ages.
There is also a more modern art division.

The ticket will give you half price on Holstentor Museum.

The ground floor has a large collection of altarpieces. So many I lost count. The first floor has collection focusing on the trade in Lübeck and has many nice and interesting imported items.

This museum is off the beaten path. We had the place to ourselves the day of our visit. It is fantastic if you have any interest in medieval art (carved altar pieces, Hans Memling).

A delightful collection well displayed in atmospheric surroundings. We liked the Flemish Wise and Foolish Virgins. The Memling altar piece is already worth the trip to Lubeck in itself. Upstairs we admired the largest wardrobe we had ever seen.

This museum has a fine collection of paintings, altarpieces and sculpture, including a gorgeous altarpiece by Hans Memling. Not to be missed! The second floor is furnished like a wealthy merchant's home, with good collections of furniture, porcelain, etc.

The St. Annen Museum has an incredible collection of clerical medieval altars, a dedicated and friendly staff and a more than worthwhile multimedia presentation to Lübeck and Hanseatic League history - very informative, if you take the time to dive in!
