One of my favorite churches in Lubeck, not so stately as others in town, but more carefully decorated inside and with a more intimate atmosphere. The inlaid pews are really noteworthy, and the massive decorated organ is also a masterpiece of art.

The Fishermen's church, it contains a memorial to civilians who died at sea over the years. It is quite an atmospheric place and has a shady courtyard.
