Wooden built full size church of astonishing quality and beauty - brought back to life after a ruinous fire destroyed most of the structure. It is hard to believe that the whole structure is wood!

This beautiful church in the UNESCO historic district is a definite must-see when in Lunenburg. Having survived a horrific fire, it has been lovingly restored and still bears the scars of the fire, but stands tall in the town as a unique and beautiful site. Thank you to the two guides and to the Walking Tour guide for showing us the building. A magnificent gem.

This church is so incredibly beautiful. Take in its magnificence and enjoy some time studying its fine details. The church was lost some years ago to a devastating fire. It has been restored to its former beauty and is a sight not to be missed.

By all means, stop by to view the interesting external architecture,but also include a visit inside. The reconstruction is spectacular.

Can't believe this beautiful building had burned down a few years ago. What a magnificent restoration.
