Visited with my parents and children. There is lots of history here. During WWII the church was severely damaged. Much was rebuilt but signs remain as a remembrance of the bombings. There was an organist during our visit, which of course added to the ambiance....More

There is a small charge of EUR 2,00 to visit the interior of this church, but it's more than worth it. The painted brick and stone make this a very bright church with ceilings that are dramatically high. The broken bells left in place from...More

I was interested especially in the two bells, that broke and melted during the British bombing in March 1942; the astronomical clock and the story about Dietrich Buxtehude and the visit of the 20 y. old Johann Sebastian Bach to Buxtehude in 1705..

Have to pay to enter but is worth it, The fallen Bells memorial is poignant and memorable. The building is impressive.

Yes, I believe there is but we spent our time in Lubeck walking. Look up the telephone number of the Tourist Office and give them a call. They are helpful. Whitebeard83

Sorry, I have just visited the building. Have you tried the Tourist Office or approached the church itself?
Is there an entrance fee?
