Many others have spoken of the magnificent interior, impressive even by the standards of other major European cathedrals. I was most impressed by the honesty with which the massive church bells, smashed into the brick floors and irretrievably broken, were presented as an object lesson...More

Like many other buildings in Lubbeck this church has been well restored after WW2. Their is an entrance charge which I somewhat object to since it is a church and this makes it seem more like a tourist attraction rather than a place of worship....More

We stopped here on a tour from our cruise ship and was truly amazed at the history surrounding it. The church is beautiful on it's own, and it's been through a lot. But they also have several things related to the struggles that have occurred,...More

If you like visiting churches, this is a great example of a German brick-built Gothic Church. Badly destroyed in the Second World War it has risen again. There was an interesting exhibition on the use of bombing cities as a tool in war. Shame it...More

Do visit, you are asked for a small fee but this goes towards the upkeep of the building which was bombed heavily at the end of WW2 but which has been restored. Beautiful ceilings which make interesting photos.

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?
