We visited as part of the bus tour - the church is beautiful. The architecture & layout inside (with its 4 organs!) is breathtaking & well worth the visit. Our guide made it all the more interesting with his knowledge of its history!

We stopped by on a layover. The church is beautiful and has large tower that gives access to a great view of the area. Due to our late arrival, we did not have time to do the crypt tour although it offered.

One of the main stops on our panoramic tour of Hamburg. Restored to its original grandeur after the WWII bombing by Allied air forces. Dominant feature of the city skyline.
