St. Michael's Church, Hamburg
(4.5/5 based on 2,400+ reviews on the web)
The emblematic 132 m (433 ft) Baroque spire of St. Michael's Church is completely covered in copper. For centuries, this prominent feature of the city's skyline has been a landfall mark for ships sailing up the Elbe river. Relatively simple outside yet surprisingly opulent inside, the church features a large bronze statue above its main entrance showing Archangel Michael conquering the devil. Be sure to enter the crypt, which has an exhibit narrating the city's long history. Try to plan your visit for a sunny day for the best views from the church's tower. You'll find easy access by stairs or elevator. This city landmark hosts frequent concerts and other cultural events. Make St. Michael's Church a part of your Hamburg vacation plans using our Hamburg holiday planner.

  • A church that is worth visiting. White interior and view of the legendary organ. It is worth climbing the Tower (5 € per person) where you can admire the panorama in 360 * of the city. Also notable is the crypt.

  • The churches of Hamburg are built and destroyed by lightning and burning or by war, violence, and this St Michael is no exception. The Interior is sober in terms of decoration but the balconies are by their beautiful curves dominate. I can hardly remember something that appears.

  • The church is beautiful and it provides a fantastic panorama view of the city! Don't worry about the endless stairs, there's an elevator you can take, and maybe walk down enjoying different city views on the way down.
  • Amazing , magnificent church . Especially you should see the view of Hamburg from the top 👍👍👍 There is a lift and not expensive .
  • Just beautiful. You have to go to the top of the tower, the view is just magnificent.
  • You can watch all the city. I recommend you visit this place.
  • Beautiful view all over the city. There is lift to the top of tower, but you should go down by stairs to look around inside tower.
