As a church goes, this one is tall and gothic. It does, however, demonstrate history. The church bells, laying where they fell when the church was bombed, speak volumes about the destruction power of war. We enjoyed studying the historic clock on the other side...More

A really nice experience. The church appears beautiful and well-kept despite the destruction it suffered as a result from the bombing during the war. The 2 fallen church bells build a strong bridge between the church's century-old history and our time. The beautiful church room...More

Huge vaulted ceiling - in fact, all on a huge scale. Reminds me of the Anglican Cathedral in Liverpool. Poignancy is added by the fallen bells. And don't forget to have your picture taken with the Devil outside...

This is a huge church with an incredible organ. The organ has 8500 pipes and is the largest mechanical organ in the world. Some of the walls are five meters thick.

We went there to follow the composer Buxtehude and saw a really fine example of German gothic architecture. The high ceilings are awesome. The old church bells from 1944, broken on the floor of the church, are a striking World War 2 memorial.

So big it is hard to get it in one picture, unless you are far away. Had seen the interior 2 times prior to this trip so I just took photos of the outside with my new camera.

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?
