St. Catherine´s Church


St. Catherine's Church is the only preserved one of the former four monastery churches in Lübeck.

Around 1300, St. Catherine's Church was built as a church for the Franciscan order - a church of a mendicant order without a steeple. The brick building was once the centre of the Franciscans in the entire Baltic Sea region and impresses with its masonry of black-green glazed and red unglazed bricks despite its relatively simple architecture.
Inside, there are numerous special features to discover, such as the two-story choir and the masterpiece "Revival of Lazarus" by Venetian painter Jacopo Tintoretto (1576)
