Marienkirche, Lubeck

(4.4/5 based on 420 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.

  • The most important Church in Lübeck. A beautiful example of Gothic from the inside, completely white with beautiful stained glass Windows. Damaged during the second world war-they denote the marks-was partially rebuilt without affecting more than try to the original building. During the city tour you need to get into it.

  • Appearance with the construction. Adults take 2 Euro entrance fee. At the entrance to sell us souvenirs in Lübeck, such as postcards, ball-point pens, wine. Toilet, but the visitors? That seems not to have let me use the toilet in a cafe near said. The pipe organ and stained glass Windows, of course, astronomical clock.

  • The temple, similar to that built other temples of Germany. The height of a brick building. The temple burned down after the bombing during the second world war. But now restored. Interesting Watch inside.

  • 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...
