Lübeck Travel Tip:
St. Anne's Museum

St. Anne's Museum
Courtyard of St. Anne's

The museum is located in a former Augustinian convent from the early 16th century and is host to Germany's most significant collection of ecclesiastical art and late-medieval carved altarpieces of German origin. The collection is completed by sacral works of Dutch painting from the 15th and 16th centuries, the outstanding example of which is the famed Passion Altar sculpted by Hans Memling in 1491. The department also displays an exquisite collection of liturgical garments and tools from the Middle Ages.

On the first floor the visitor finds an exhibition of home décor. The museum shows in several differently furnished rooms how the citizens of the Hanseatic city lived during the centuries from the Middle Ages until around 1800. Antique furniture of exquisite quality, showpieces of glasses and magnificent silver, porcelain and faience are reminders of the wealth and the taste of the citizens of Lübeck. The museum also houses an exhibition of toys.
