A sign outside listed a children's concert within the hour on this Sunday afternoon. Before the concert, we saw the broken bells on the floor where they landed during WW2 bombing. In another area a grouping of rugged crosses near a small stained glass Luther...More

Thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the church and the surrounds. History is interesting and well worth reading as you walk around - or use a guided tour.

A really nice experience. The church appears beautiful and well-kept despite the destruction it suffered as a result from the bombing during the war. The 2 fallen church bells build a strong bridge between the church's century-old history and our time. The beautiful church room...More

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...

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?
