A 5 nave 14th Century church of gothic brick. Oldest Lutheran church in the country. Look for the carved chandelier with face of bishop on one side and Virgin Mary on the other. Stunning carved altarpiece and go around the back to see the 15th...More

We always visit churches in new towns and cities as they tell the story as seen from a local's point of view. Lüneburg is famous for its organs and it is an important city for organ music. Johan Sebastian Bach spent time here. This Monday...More

I happened to visit on the perfect weekend. There was a festival with a fair. There are many restaurants and shops to visit. I found a wide variety of food choices and a decent number of bars to get a drink.

This church has a fair collection of old paintings and side altars offering insight even into the beginnings of the reformation. Well kept up and still much used it overlooks the former traffic hub of the city.

The largest church close to the station, it shows the power which Lüneburg once had. In a area surrounded by grand houses, it has some modern and old stained glass windows worth seeing. Powerful bells can be heard from quite a distance.

Nothing spectacular inside, would not recommend to claustrophobic people, entrance is possible only with a tourist guide for a small fee and only on Saturdays (not in winter). The guide is telling interesting things, but the church tower itself is not very spectacular inside. But...More
