Inspirock Rating:
4.1/5 based on 400+ 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.

  • I hope that during my next visit to the city the tower is completely restored, and then the climb to the top is then matched by a beautiful panorama of the city. In any case the ruins and that they represent are a moment of silence to meditate on the tragedies that have affected millions of people during World War II.

  • 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.
  • Nice memorial site. Reminder of how destructed was the WWII were.
  • Astonishingly powerful museum of Operation Gommorrah in 1943. Wondering why Hamburg is new? Visit here.
  • Museum was very nice. The view is limited due to construction.
