Convent Cultural Forum with Museum of Archaeology

The convent where the Convent Cultural Forum is located was built in 1229 by monks of the Dominican Order on the mound of Lübeck’s Old Town. The Danish governor’s castle had previously stood there. The convent was dedicated to Mary Magdalene, the patron saint of the city. But today, it is commonly known as the convent.
In the Gothic rooms of the ground floor and in the Museum of Archaeology in the confessional building, the young and old alike can get a feel for the colourful Middle Ages.
