We had limited expections, but the museum was really excellent. It had beautiful pieces from churches and monasteries from all over, including a spectacular Memling altarpiece. The guide on the upper level was exceptionally helpful.

Situated in a former convent this museum has a contemporary part, the Kunsthalle (which unless you are interested in contemporary art can safely be skipped) and the St Annen museum itself.

The St Annen Museum is based around the old cloister. It is split between the secular and the religious. On the first floor are displays of paintings, portraits, jewllery, recreated interiors, etc. These are mostly gifts of the burghers of Lubeck.

On the ground floor are the real masterpieces of the museum, consisting of sculptures, paintings and altar pieces from the Medieval and early renaissance periods. The main ones to look out for are the Memling altar piece, the statue of St George and the Dragon and stone carvings of the wise and foolish virgins.

The Kunsthalle and St Annen Museum are regarded as separate and so if you want entrance to both you should buy a combination ticket. However, the St Annen Museum is the more interesting part and would be better value spending money on the ticket just for this museum.

In Lubeck it can be reached by passing through the Holstentor and heading straight along the street in front of it, Holstenstrasse. This will lead on to Wahmstrasse and a street off this on the right hand side is St Annenstrasse.

This museum was my top priority in Lübeck and it exceeded my expectations. Frankly, I would have been happy with the museum if I had only seen the Memling altarpiece (absolutely gorgeous) but there was so much more to see and it was curated beautifully. Lots of medieval art on the ground floor and room after room of lovely things to look at upstairs - I spent about two hours there and enjoyed every minute.

Different Christian cults. Very impressed.
Multiple Marys. Hairy Mary. Surprised to see so many lovely things outside a capital city.

The St. Annen Museum has an incredible collection of clerical medieval altars, a dedicated and friendly staff and a more than worthwhile multimedia presentation to Lübeck and Hanseatic League history - very informative, if you take the time to dive in!
