Brick Gothic in the strict sense is the name of a style of Gothic architecture widespread in Northern Germany, Denmark, Poland and the Baltic states, commonly identified with the sphere of influence of the Hanseatic League. It is also known as Baltic Brick Gothic or North German Brick Gothic and developed typical characteristics there. Gothic brick structures have also been erected in other regions, from England to Finland and Lake Peipus, but also in northern Italy, in southwestern and central France, and in the Danubian area of southern Germany. The particular architectural styles of these regions differ from each other.


Brick architecture became common in areas lacking sufficient supplies of natural building stone, such as the North European Plain, where traditional wooden constructions were found inadequate for monumental structures like churches, castles, or town halls. This was already the case in the 12th century, well within the period of Romanesque architecture. Some Brick Romanesque buildings have survived into the present time. The use of brick for major architectural features continued into the Renaissance period, so that also Brick Renaissance buildings are known. The transitions between the architectural styles are continuous.

The Brick Gothic style is characterised by the lack of figural architectural sculpture, and by its creative subdivision and structuring of walls, using built ornaments and the colour contrast between red bricks, glazed bricks and white lime plaster. Depending on trade connections and transport infrastructure (namely navigable rivers), architectural elements made from hewn stone might be added. Historically, techniques of building and decorating of brick originated in Lombardy.[1]


Northern region[edit]

The northern region of Brick Gothic architecture is similar in extent to, but not identical with the sphere of influence of the Hanseatic League. A preponderance of Gothic brick buildings is found in the younger cities east of the Elbe which were founded during the German eastward expansion. They include representative urban buildings, cathedrals and churches, and monasteries of the Mendicant Orders and other communities, especially the Cistercians and the Premonstratensians. The Teutonic Knights erected brick castles, known as Ordensburgen, in an area extending from historic Prussia to Estonia, and the style was also adopted in Poland and Lithuania.

The style of Gothic brick buildings in northwestern Germany, the Netherlands and Flanders (the latter including the Belgian and the French parts of that area) differs slightly from that of the countries around the Baltic Sea. Gothic brick architecture can be found in a continuous area spanning from the Strait of Dover to Lake Peipus, increasing in latitudinal extent eastward and spreading north to the Finnish Lakeland and south to the foothills of the Carpates in Poland), forming a roughly triangular area.

Southern regions[edit]

Independent of the Northern region, there are four more areas where Gothic brick architecture is concentrated:

  • The largest is the Padan Plain in northern Italy, with small dependencies in Tuscany.
  • The second largest southern region of Gothic brick architecture is situated around Toulouse in southwestern France.
  • The third largest is the region of Bavarian Brick Gothic, extending from Munich with its Frauenkirche down to the Danube river.
  • The smallest area is located in central France, south of Orleans.

The Bavarian style is very different from the northern German styles. The French and Italian styles differ significantly from both the German and Dutch ones, as well as from each other.

Transitional styles[edit]

In all the regions listed above, a clear distinction of buildings in the Gothic style from those in the preceding Brick Romanesque or in the succeeding Brick Renaissance style is not possible. Frequently, buildings originating in one era were altered or added to in the next, the construction of others was begun while one style prevailed, but was completed in the following style due to the slow progress of the building works. Such buildings can be characterised as belonging to both style epochs.


This list will never be complete. But it aims to give a survey as well on the variance as on the geography of Gothic brick buildings.

The dates given here refer to the present extant Gothic structures. Predecessors or post-Gothic alterations are not normally mentioned, but can be assessed by following up the literature. The most influential structures are indicated by bold print. Romanesque and Renaissance structures are not listed. Gothic Brick structures from outside the Baltic or North German regions, e.g. the Danubian ones, are also included, while Neogothic edifices are not listed.

Most of the Gothic brick architecture in Belgium can be found in West Flanders, some in a narrow strip along the border with the Netherlands. Many Gothic brick churches in the Province of Limburg have been lost in the 19th century, as they were displaced by Gothic Revival churches.

In England, the use of bricks for pretentious buildings began later than in continental Europe. And the collective of Gothic brick buildings differs, almost no religious buildings and very few urban ones.

North Rhine-Westphalia[edit]

In North Rhine-Westphalia, Brick Gothic is concentrated west of the Rhine north of Cologne (Köln) and in western Münsterland. The regional style, including the colour of the bricks (very dark or very pale, but almost never red), is very similar to neighbouring regions of the Netherlands – where most historical churches have been displaced by Gothic Revival buildings.
