Nunnery museum

Surrounded by gardens, the nunnery of Lüne is one of the oldest and most picturesque places in Lüneburg. This abode of Benedictines was founded in 1170.

During the age of Reformation the nunnery was passed on to Protestants. The abode often received gifts from patrons. In the reception room, you have to pay attention to the gothic fountain, while inside the church – to the 1524 altar and 17th century organ, which is considered one of the best in Lower Saxony by sound quality. The house of the mother superior exhibits portraits of her predecessors.

In the museum at the nunnery you can see the altar and towels with linen embroidery of the 13th-14th century; large-scale tapestries; bed linen embroidered with “monastery stitches” in 1500; unique 15th century curtains performed using tempera. Even in the café at the nunnery you will find a 17th century painting.
