Go up by elevator to get to a windy view point. Can finish this in 10 minutes. Ok if you have to kill time.

We visited a craft market here and also went up the tower. There was an entrance fee for the market and a separate fee for the tower. The journey to the top of the tower and back was by lift. At the top there are amazing views of "the island". When we visited there was fog, which made the views... More

We took the lift up to the rooftop which affords amazing views over the city. It was very windy up there so wrap up but it is well worth a visit at only 3 euros.

There was a great artisans' market going on in the church. A large selection of beautiful and interesting items on sale. But the gem is the church tower with its four viewing-corners. Just great. Should not be missed on a visit to Lübeck.

Beautiful view coming into town. Inside the church was amazing and interesting. The church was in the renovation stage. We didn't make it to the tower because there was a long line.

By getting a Family Ticket of 6€ for 2 adults and 3 kids, we enjoyed Lübeck from the highest place. What a beautiful City! A canal, churches,Holzentör, old buildings... They are amazing. Ps: Don't worry about Steps to reach the top. There is a Lift for all visitors.

The views from the top are stunning and help you orientate yourself within the town. It is cheap to use the lift and definitely recommended.

The main attraction is the viewing platform of the tower. You can use the elevator or climb the stairs and have a great view over the city and the surrounding area. If clear weather you can even see the Maritim skyscraper in Travemünde at the ocean! The church itself was heavily destruchted in WWII and was the last to repair.... More

The views from the look-out platform in the top of the Church tower are very nice - you can oversee the whole of the Altstadt as well as the Holstentor and the Salt-storage sheds, all historic architecture. The lookout is easily accesible by elevators. The church itself is no fun to look in - it is complete empty for a... More
