The church is located near Holstentor Gates. There is nothing interesting inside but the pearl of this church is the tower. Ticket to the top costs 3 euro and you and you won't have to overcome many steps-just go on the top by elevator that is unusual and very convenient. You'll find amasing view to Holstentor and panoramic view of... More

A lift takes you to the top of St Petri where there are superb views over Lubeck in all directions. It's enclosed, so no problems with vertigo and well worth the small amount of Euros.

For a few euros it's definitely worth getting the lift & stairs up to see stunning views of the city....

St. Petri is a must if you are visiting Lubeck - it provides 360 degrees view of this beautiful town from one of the most beautiful structures in this ancient town. I wish there was a walking up option, since on weekends the tiny elevators operates in a "clown car" mode most of the time.

Go up by elevator to get to a windy view point. Can finish this in 10 minutes. Ok if you have to kill time.

We visited a craft market here and also went up the tower. There was an entrance fee for the market and a separate fee for the tower. The journey to the top of the tower and back was by lift. At the top there are amazing views of "the island". When we visited there was fog, which made the views... More

We took the lift up to the rooftop which affords amazing views over the city. It was very windy up there so wrap up but it is well worth a visit at only 3 euros.

There was a great artisans' market going on in the church. A large selection of beautiful and interesting items on sale. But the gem is the church tower with its four viewing-corners. Just great. Should not be missed on a visit to Lübeck.

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.
