    The church was built in the years of 1277-1351 in the style of brick Gothic. It has the highest brick vault of the world with 38.5 m. She was a role model in the construction of about 70 other churches.

    St. Marien, the church of the Council of the Hanseatic City of Lübeck, is the third largest church in Germany.
    It is considered a particularly valuable and great example of ecclesiastical brick Gothic. The citizens of Lübeck built the church in the immediate vicinity of their town hall. The construction was begun around 1250 and completed in 1350.
    St. Mary's Church of the Hanseatic City of Lübeck St. Mary's Church of the Hanseatic City of Lübeck
    Gothic cathedrals in France and Flanders were models of the three-aisled Lübeck basilica with its almost 40-meter high central nave - the highest brick vault in the world - and the two 125-meter-high towers. At St. Marien zu Lübeck, for the first time, the forms of Gothic from natural stone were "translated" into the local brick material.
    St. Mary became a model for numerous Gothic brick churches in the entire Baltic Sea region.
