Door/4 – 22 Kleine Burgstrasse

This door leads to the interior of one of the oldest brick Gothic buildings in the Old Town in Lubeck, Germany.  The roof of the Kranenkonvent has been dated to the year 1283.  Originally a convent, it was modified several times.  After the Reformation and until 1846 it was an alms house; then an infirmary.  By 1920 it was a residence for the elderly and since 1966 it has housed social welfare offices.
