Full description

Immerse yourself in a guided group tour of the historic artworks housed in the beautifully renovated St. Anne's Museum. First built as a monastery in 1515, learn all about its infamous history as a poor house, prison, and perhaps even a brothel.

Get up close and personal with exquisitely hand-carved altarpieces from as early as the 15th century. Learn all about these polyptychs as your expert guide shares the historical backstories of pieces by artists such as Hans Memling, Herman Rode, and Henning von der Heide. Inside the Chamber of Paraments, you can marvel at the remarkable craftsmanship of hand-embroidered 13th-century paraments (alter hangings), which had been hidden away in drawers for centuries, and only rediscovered in the late 1800s.

Extend your guided tour with the 4-hour option, which will allow you to experience St. Anne’s Museum, as well as an additional sightseeing trip around the historic city of Lübeck, which is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Here, your knowledgeable guide will lead the way to iconic places such as the Holsten Gate, Lübeck Cathedral, and St. Peter’s Church as well as other landmarks that have played important roles in the past of this Hanseatic City.
