Behind the choir, in the "Marientidenkapelle", you can see a late Gothic altar from the early 1500's made in Antwerpen. The altar is beautiful and it contains carvings portraying scenes from the life of Mary.
I loved the old artefacts in the Marienkirche. But that is not the only thing that you can see here. The church is actually a weird mixture between old and new styles. I am not sure if that really could please me that much. I like to see churches in their original state, without adding too many modern elements. Sometimes this mix does work, and sometimes it doesn't. For me in this case it wasn't a huge success. But that doesn't take away that I did love certain elements to be seen in this huge church. And if you are in Luebeck you certainly have to take a look inside. The sheer size of it alone will impress you.
