Brick Gothic

Lubeck Cathedral is a lovely building, one of the red brick Gothics, but painted white on the inside. Lovely organ and 14th century crucifix.

Fortunately there were very few tourists so we could meander and enjoy the interior from different perspectives without being jostled. The crucifix over the main altar is magnificently constructed. In its simplicity there is great peace inside the church. Whitebeard83

It is worth a visit if you like to visit churches/cathedrals. During our visit it was undergoing restoration but you can still visit the cathedral without problems.

Visited the church in June during a North European cruise and Lubeck is one of the ports we visited. The cathedral is currently under construction so parts of it is not very pretty. You have to pay a small entry fee to go inside the church, although you can just view it for a while from the inside just before... More

The fallen bells still laying there crushing through the floor ... so sad and reflecting the sad war torn past of this city. The starkness of the building gave it a serene beauty.

The cathedral has been restored after the wartime bomb damage. It is a beautiful building. Many of the boards explaining the statues etc were in English.

Lubeck cathedral [dom] is on the southern border of the old town, gothic in style and very peacefull and serene. the huge scale of the place makes it seem austere. the green courtyard with the ancient tree and surrounding church buildings add to the atmosphere.

This cathedral is different in many ways from the other churches in Lubeck's old town. Firstly - its large, Secondly - there is a lot of tombs with big stone coffins. Finaly - the cathedral is divided in two parts with a large area behind the altar. Its different but all in all , there is not much to see.... More

Very large temple, the central balcony with the clockwork and wooden crucifixion are really masterpieces of art. Noteworthy are also the many lateral chapels, decorated in a typical North-European style. The walls painted in white and the large windows to allow in the scarce sunlight available in this Northern region add much to the atmosphere.

Everything here is on a huge scale, the carvings, paintings, grave slabs, tombs. But so different from french and english cathedrals. Alarming lean on the main towers!!!!
