“Old town gem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2014

Visited here as part of a tour of the old town - just one of many places in Lubeck that should be on a must see list. Lovely frescos and fascinating to see.

“Nice one”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

Another one of those places full of history in Luebeck. How fascinating that it is used for stalls in the Christmas market!

“Great concept & history, but not much to see.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2013

If you've seen the hospice in Beaune, this is its poor, poor cousin. Worth a peek to see what their guests had to deal with, but that's about it.

If you do go to this area, check out St. Jacob's church, about 1 block away. The church, itself, is not too special, but that 15th century organ is absolutely amazing!

“Lovely building”
4 of 5 bubbles 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 bubbles 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.
