“Fantastic church”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

A MUST to visit right in the centre of Lûbeck. The entrance card gives you the possibility of returning the same day, which is nice if you need a nice place to rest. The church is beautiful inside and has a fantastic story.

“Gothic in brick”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

To British eyes a very unusual church in being built from brick as opposed to stone like most gothic churches. Rebuilt after bomb damage in WW2 the interior has been restored to include the painted ceilings and a magnificent organ.

“Magnificent”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

This is a must, when visiting lübeck. This old great church. Just sit in there for a while, and let the athmosphere overwhelm you. The story of everything in the church is exiting, but especially the story of the bell.

“a fantastic church with some moving features”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

The church itself is very beautiful and has a moving feature. Lubeck was bombarded during the war and the church was bombed. The fragments of the church bells which survived were left in exactly the spot they fell and a Coventry cross (signifying rconciliation) has been put next to them.
