Create an itinerary including St. Petri zu Lubeck
Learn about an intriguing approach to religion at St. Petri zu Lubeck, a church that was rebuilt after World War II. The church combines Christian and Muslim customs, and the congregation meets here the first Saturday of every month instead of weekly on Sundays. While visiting, be sure to catch the view from the tower, where the best views come at sunset. Reach the observation deck via elevator. Check the schedule for the occasional art gallery shows, public readings, and concerts on site. See St. Petri zu Lubeck and all Lubeck has to offer by arranging your trip with our Lubeck attractions planner.

  • One of my main recommendations when visiting Lübeck is to go up this tower. There's a lift so it's accessible and you get panorama views across the city. It was fairly cheap especially if you show...

  • The highlight of the church is actually the viewing platform at the top. After some short stairs there is an elevator that takes you to the top for 5 eur. Highly recommend as it's the only tower in town that you can go up. Impressive city views. At the bottom is a small cafe with some light food, flavored salts and a small gift shop. Dogs not allowed. Highly recommend!
  • The viewing platform on the tower is the main attraction, for us at least, at this church. Instead of glass there is a wide grille around the windows so it is a lot easier to take photos than some other attractions. There is a lift to the top - luckily - and the staff were both lovely and spoke excellent English. The church itself is heavily restored after WW2 and seems it has yet to find a new purpose. There was some sort of art exhibit inside but it wasn't really clear what it was about.
