4.4/5 based on 360+ 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.

  • It is very nice to be able to take a tour with explanations in its language that it is worth.

  • very interesting Church. Even if you have to pay 2 euros "Entry", it is worth. Guided tours as part of a city tour or directly on-site with Tower ascent at certain times be carried

  • the unique Sundial, the Lübecker Totentanz, the organ and the magnificent altar, as well as the construction of St. Mary's Church, especially after the destruction, just worth seeing

  • 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!
  • Gut
  • I think the entry ok as long as the preservation of the buildings he will benefit 100%. That's why I gave years ago during my visit. There, the admission was free. Lübeck's churches belong to the cityscape. It would be a pity if they will expire. I would like to fund any religious community. You can expect no pomp. Shooting with Tripod (and that without Flash) is prohibited. Yes, but less of this plays a role in the digital age.
