Lübeck St. Mary’s Church


Testimony of cultural history

The history of the Hanseatic city can be seen in an impressive way at Lübeck’s St. Mary’s Church. The approximately 40,000 visitors to the basilica each year can admire a wide variety of architectural styles – from Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque to the present day. In particular, the destruction by bombing in 1942 was a great blow to the church and the city of Lübeck. As one of the most important churches in Northern Europe, St. Mary’s Church in Lübeck is a prime example of successful reconstruction. Impressively, one can experience the cultural history of Christianity as well as the development of sacred art from the 13th to the 21st century.
