Huge vaulted ceiling - in fact, all on a huge scale. Reminds me of the Anglican Cathedral in Liverpool. Poignancy is added by the fallen bells. And don't forget to have your picture taken with the Devil outside...

This is a huge church with an incredible organ. The organ has 8500 pipes and is the largest mechanical organ in the world. Some of the walls are five meters thick.

We went there to follow the composer Buxtehude and saw a really fine example of German gothic architecture. The high ceilings are awesome. The old church bells from 1944, broken on the floor of the church, are a striking World War 2 memorial.

This church is a very interesting one. It was bombed in WWII and obviously rebuilt to what it is today. Very different from southern European churches, and definitely worth €2 to see it. Highly recommend.

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?
