Lübeck is known for its brick architecture. Because of the beautiful facades, tourists come to visit the Hanseatic city, which has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site for a good 30 years.
Mathias Jürgensen, who has his exhibition warehouse about 1.5 hours away from Lübeck, deals in old bricks. The bricks are removed, cleaned and palletized in elaborate manual work. In the process, each brick is a piece of building culture. Around 100,000 bricks of different types - all from Schleswig Holstein - are stored in his brick yard.
