It was the first Hospital in Europe which did NOT belong to the Church, but to the Citizens of Lubeck. The facade is most impressive,but visitors are allowed to the entrance Hall only.

A real surprise! Don't know what I'd expected but once inside I got impressed with the size of this "old folks home" (still in parts active 800 years later). Something not commonly seen and some nice frescoes, models and informative signs. Recommended!
