Burgkloster zu Lubeck - Culture Forum of the Castle Cloister

 

The Burgkloster's past is eventful and at points, tragic. In 1229 the building of the Dominicans' cloister began and since the citizens of Lubeck granted rich donations to the pious friars, a splendid cloister complex with gothic church was built in the following 220 years.

 

However, between 1976 and 1990 the Burgkloster was restored, but not without a great deal of expenditure. Today, it's a museum housing a permanent exhibition on Lubeck's trade history. Guided tours are at 11:30a on Saturday. Schmap Player 2.0
