Marienkirche, Lubeck
(4.4/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web)
Marienkirche, a large Lutheran church, is a superb example of the Brick Gothic style prevalent in northern Germany. It was constructed between 1250 and 1350, but on the night of Palm Sunday 1942, it was almost completely burnt down during an Allied air raid. You can see where the bells fell on that night--they have been left there as a memorial to the war. Though many of the old artworks were destroyed in the bombing, you can still admire the winged altar of Christian Swarte from around 1495, a wooden statue of St. John from around 1505, and a stone statue of St Antonius from around 1460. Head outside to the courtyard to see an unusual statue of the devil. Using our online itinerary creator, Lubeck attractions like Marienkirche can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Worth seeing and Geschichtsträchtig but not much else as other churches also. Quite okay... There were Christmas Eve...

  • Marienkirche is a huge Church. "You feel so small," said one of the children. Which was precisely the purpose of architecture!

  • Friends of ours had their wedding in this church. It's a fantastic scenery and perfect from the pastor. Also for a tourist visit, the Church is certainly worth a visit. At a wedding unfolded however only its special charm!

  • I love the city of Lubeck. I just spent a week there and it was a wonderful experience. The church is exquisite in and of itself, but it is one of many sites. Architecture, history, the people, the food (yes, the food) - all just wonderful. My work takes me there, and I look forward to the next trip.
  • If you like history...
  • Marvelous experience, beautiful church in an ancient gothic style. You will enjoy this place!
