My husband & I ended up staying a night in Lubeck due to a motorcycle breakdown. After a lovely dinner along the canal we took a walk about town. We have visited a lot of churches and cathedrals in Europe over the years, but the...More

Don't miss this, and take the time to walk around outside the Cathedral to admire the sheer size of the structure. Bask in its enormity. If the air is warm, find a nearby park bench. Then go inside, and be amazed at the grandeur of...More

…. definitely worth the walk, even it not always recommended in the tour books. It feels like it is on the outskirts of the town, although it is still on the island that define Lubeck proper. A Lutheran church, now cathedral, like no other (a.k.a....More

The crucifix and old clock are true works of art. This is an impressive cathedral and is a must visit in Lubek.

The baroque tombs were the big highlight here. Other art was eclectic, some old, some new. It's a light, bright space.

Lubeck Cathedral is often confused with the St Marien church near the Rathaus. Both are worth a visit. The Dom or Cathedral is on the E edge of Lubeck's old island center. It's near the St Annen-Museum. Another red-brick Gothic masterpiece. But the special draw...More

This cathedral is very interesting but not gentle or relaxing. It is quite stark but dramatic. Very unusual

We went here shortly before closing time so could see much of the church. But what we saw was quite monumental, intimidating even. The interior of the church is vast and - for a protestant church - rather extensively decorated. In it’s size and monumentalism...More

So much wonderful detail in this magnificent cathedral. The graceful carvings of the screen are outstanding as is the clock -study the eyes in the sun - they move every second. We met Herr Norkowoski again he is a volunteer guide and he helpfully pointed...More
