This is a former hospital and the entrance area is beautifully restored. We opened the doors and stepped into another page of this picture book town. Make sure you do too.

This was my second visit to the Hospital, simply because I find it both beautiful and interesting to look at. Dating as it does from the 12th century, its history, too, captures the imagination. And, yes, I did buy a little book on it when...More

When you walk in the door it is a beautiful chapel and dates to 1260. So glad we visited. You can also see the crazy small rooms of where the old folks used to live. Lubeck itself was great - took a walk around the...More
