St. Nikolai Memorial, Hamburg

(4.1/5 based on 460+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Stosorokasemimetrovaja belfry of the Church of St. Nicholas is the highest in Hamburg. She is the one preserved from the Church burnt down during the war after the bombing. Built in the mid-19th century, it was a while, remained the tallest building in the world. The ruin was preserved as a memorial to the victims of war.

  • In March 2017. still in renovation, steeple, the highest building in the world in the mid-19th century to the top you can get a free lift but the view limits the scaffolding. An interesting exhibition in the basement. Dedicated to destruction of Hamburg in 1943, including the Church and Warsaw (lent). An important element of the exhibition especially for poles.

  • A complete tour is not possible because of the many works in progress. Shame about the traffic of the street that makes location a bit noisy

  • An old bombed church. an elevator drives you at the top with panoramic view of the city
  • 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.
  • What a place! Astonishing reminder of war's crimes.
  • Cheap entry, only 2 euros - 1 euro if you are a student. We were here at winter so not much of a view. A lot of construction aswell so didn't see much, but still very cool.
  • A little disappointing.. the Church was slightly below expectations. My family and I had counted on a better and more beautiful experience. The Church did not live up to the website's description.
