From history to the present day - The almost five-metre-high tarpaulins depict the historical background of the cathedral, the origins and tasks of the Kirchenbauhütte, the results of the preliminary investigations on the twin towers including the structural analysis and presentation of the drill cores, the planned restoration measures, the finances of the cathedral and the Lübeck-Lauenburg church district, life in the cathedral parish and the fundraising project "7 towers I want to see".

  • "The exhibition in the cathedral makes the great commitment to Lübeck's church towers visible in a special way and explains how diverse and elaborate the necessary renovation work is. A real experience at an authentic location that you must have seen." Jan Lindenau, Mayor of the Hanseatic City of Lübeck
  • "The pictures in this exhibition take us into the eventful and moving history of Lübeck Cathedral. They tell of great passion and impressive stamina during the various construction phases, especially during the reconstruction after the Second World War. They give a detailed insight into the planning of the upcoming restoration. And they invite young and old to participate in the colourful community life under the cathedral towers." Dr. Cornelia Schäfer

Exciting information awaits you about the complex task of restoring such a mighty double-towered structure, which has been repeatedly repaired over the centuries.


Our opening hours: daily 10 am - 4 pm
