Lübeck — Part Three

Lübeck Cathedral (Lübecker Dom) was the first of the red-brick churches built in North Germany in the cities bordering the Baltic Sea. It was dedicated in 1247 and constructed without buttresses, so that the side aisles are much narrower than inside the larger Marienkirche, and they shoot upward at steep angles.

The Cathedral was badly damaged in World War II, and the Arp Schniter organ of 1699 was replaced with a modern Wacker organ.

The "Triumph-Kreuz" and clock date from 1477.
