St. Mary’s, built between 1277 and 1351, is the third largest church in Germany and a grand example of Gothic brickwork. St. Mary’s was nearly burned down during the bomb raid on Lübeck in March 1942. In 1968, St. Mary’s got the world’s largest organ with 10,000 organ pipes.
Lübeck is also famous for its marzipan. This sweet almond treat is produced by several companies, some of which are over 200 years old.
Since 1987 is the Hanseatic City of Lübeck on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
