      Interior of Marienkirche

The Marienkirche was badly damaged in WW2 though it has been well restored since. Inside is an exhibiton on Lubeck and the church during and after WW2 right up to its restoration. The most striking picture was the one showing the church with its distinctive two spires missing.

Also very interesting were the model replicas of the church in its various forms (it has been rebuilt 3 times) and the bells, which have been leftr in ruins where they fell after the Allied bombing in 1942.The interior is spacious, light and airy with a nice colour on the walls. The astrological clock does seem slightly out of place in Christian church.

Overall it's well owrth visiting this church. There is no entrance price though there is a suggested donation of 3 Euro for the upkeep of the church.
