Photographer's Note

There is this phrase in English, when you are listing something and you are about to mention somebody or something who is the last on the list but you don’t want the person to feel bad about being the last one, so you say: “last but not least”.
I have mentioned those seven spires of Lubeck churches and indeed most of them I presented on TrekEarth from various angles. There is one which I didn’t show before and it is the spire which you see in this photo. It is St. Aegidien Church. It is the smallest one and it is located slightly off all the other attractions in the old town so it is easy to miss. This church made me often think about the importance of Lubeck in the past. If you visit these days the largest town in the county (Bundesland) of Schleswig-Holstein, which is Kiel. The main attraction there is a church which is very similar to St Aegidien. The same is true for Luneburg. You can imagine how much more important was Lubeck in the past having so many huge, for Medieval standards, churches.
This photo again was taken from the tower of St Petri.
Now browsing through my Lubeck photos you can get a good idea about how the old town looks like at the blue hour:
