Craft Market St. Peters

Festive activities in one of the most beautiful churches in the north – that's the Craft Market in St. Peter's

The Lübeck “Kulturkirche” (culture church) is now beautifully decorated for Christmas and craftspeople from all over the world present their wonderful works in the ambience of the 800-year-old, bright interior of the church. You'll find gift ideas for Christmas here: from precision-turned ceramics and woodwork, excellent textiles and feltwork, to jewellery, glass and amber, plus wool and woven creations – the selection is huge and you're bound to find the right thing to go under your tree. On the Advent weekends your children can create mini fairy light chains and tree decorations. The St. Petri Café also offers Christmas treats and there is a stand serving delicious apple punch right at the entrance. Enjoy a glass and once you've warmed up why not climb the tower – you get a fantastic view of the Christmas City of the North from 50 metres up. Because St. Petri is a church, every market day ends with reflective organ music.
