St. Nikolai Memorial, Hamburg

(460+ reviews on the web)
Historic Site Tourist Spot
St. Nikolai Memorial, once the tallest building in the world, easily attracted the attention of Allied bombers in 1943--and it still lies in partial ruins. A small museum (with English information) about the horrors of the war features images of the building before and immediately after the bombing. Museum admission includes an elevator ride to the top tower, where a viewing gallery overlooks the city. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to St. Nikolai Memorial and many more Hamburg attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Hamburg vacation planner.

  • This place is to remember on the terrible bombings in the WW II. The church is currently renovated, but from a little far away you still can see the tower, which is quite nice.  more »

  • Well worth visiting the museum under the church. The view at the top of the tower is still awesome even with the scaffolding!
  • This is an amazing piece of architecture and you have a great view from the top.
  • Another monuments dedicated to peoples' crazyness
  • At this time there is construction happening and so there is no view at the top. It is only one euro to ride the elevator
  • I liked visiting this place. The St. Nikolai church was destroyed in the second world war and the citizens decided to keep in the same state to show the world how war can do.
