The Schüsselbuden is a street in Lübeck's old town .


The approx. 230 meter long bowl stall is located in the western central area of ​​the old town island ( Marien Quartier ) and runs in a north-south direction. It begins as an extension of the street Fünfhausen at the intersection with the Mengstraße ; in the further course Alfstrasse , Fischstrasse and Braunstrasse join one another from the west . Opposite Braunstraße, Weite Krambuden leads to the market . The Schüsselbuden ends when it meets Holstenstrasse and the Kohlmarkt ; On the south side of the intersection, Schmiedestrasse is the continuation of the Schüsselbuden.


The Schüsselbuden is mentioned for the first time in 1350 as Prope Schottelboden (not far from the Schüsselbuden), although the name only referred to the section between Holstenstrasse and Braunstrasse until modern times ; the remaining part up to Mengstrasse did not have a proper name for a long time, so that the houses there were given a variety of auxiliary names.

The Low German name Schottelboden is derived from the stalls selling bowls and similar products that lined the eastern side of the street.

In 1368 the name Platea dicta Schottelboden (street, called Schüsselbuden) is documented, 1436 In Schottelboden . The current name has been officially established since 1852.

The rich historical development, which dates back to several centuries, was almost completely destroyed in the air raid on Lübeck on March 29, 1942 , including the non-rebuilt wing that originally separated the bowl booths from the west portal of the Marienkirche . The image of the street, which was significantly widened and straightened during the reconstruction in the fifties, is today largely shaped by functional buildings from the fifties and sixties , so that neither the appearance nor the spatial impression match the character that has evolved over time.


Due to the destruction of the Second World War , hardly any older buildings have been preserved in the Schüsselbuden. Exceptions to this are:

The Schütting , the office building of the shopkeeper from 1587 (Schüsselbuden 24), was demolished for the post office building ; his renaissance portal by Robert Coppens was moved to Braunstraße 1/3 and taken over into the neo-Gothic parcel post building built between 1905 and 1909 as a side entrance on the corner of Braunstraße.

The Gothic vaulted cellar was preserved from the corner house Schüsselbuden 2 / Mengstraße, which was destroyed in 1942, as well as a large-format medieval wall painting on the front, southern side wall of the ground floor, which is dated to 1331–1338 and shows the adoration of the Magi . This was integrated into the new building of the house in 1958 and is now visible in the local shop.
