Lubeck Churches and Cathedral

(Lubeck, Schleswig-Holstein, Germany)




Lubeck is graced by many historic churches, the most impressive of which is Lubeck Cathedral, better known as simply the 'Dom'.

St. Mary's Church is also especially notable and features classical architecture and towering spires. Lubeck's main churches are below.

Lubeck Cathedral (Dom)


Address: Domkirchhof, Altstadt, Lubeck, D-23552, Germany, DE
Tel: +49 0451 7 4123
Lubeck Cathedral dates back to the latter part of the 12th century and was finally completed some 60 years later. Following the devastating bombing raid in 1942, the cathedral suffered significant damage, along with much of the city. The sympathetic reconstruction work finished in 1982 and inside, the cathedral is fortunate to still contain many of its original features, including a 17-metre / 56-foot crucifix and many ornate stained-glass windows. Unusually, Lubeck Cathedral is not the tallest church in the city.
