Beautiful view coming into town. Inside the church was amazing and interesting. The church was in the renovation stage. We didn't make it to the tower because there was a long line.

The churh is beeing renovated and there was nearly nothing inside and a bit rowdy outside, but the elevator up into the tower was open and for a small amount you get a nice view of the beautiful city

By getting a Family Ticket of 6€ for 2 adults and 3 kids, we enjoyed Lübeck from the highest place. What a beautiful City! A canal, churches,Holzentör, old buildings... They are amazing. Ps: Don't worry about Steps to reach the top. There is a Lift for all visitors.

The views from the top are stunning and help you orientate yourself within the town. It is cheap to use the lift and definitely recommended.

The main attraction is the viewing platform of the tower. You can use the elevator or climb the stairs and have a great view over the city and the surrounding area. If clear weather you can even see the Maritim skyscraper in Travemünde at the ocean! The church itself was heavily destruchted in WWII and was the last to repair.... More

The views from the look-out platform in the top of the Church tower are very nice - you can oversee the whole of the Altstadt as well as the Holstentor and the Salt-storage sheds, all historic architecture. The lookout is easily accesible by elevators. The church itself is no fun to look in - it is complete empty for a... More

It was interesting from a historical and architectural point of view. There is no question that it's a beautiful building. Just don't expect too much on the inside.

Take the lift to the top for a great view of the city. It doesn't take very long. We thought we would have lots of stairs to climb but the lift was welcome!

There is only one reason to visit this place and that is to pay some euros to take the elevator to the observation deck and enjoy the views. The views in my opinion might be the best of all the towers in Lubeck that you can climb. Prtimary because from this tower you'll see the other towers on the bigger... More
