St. Nikolai Church was the tallest structure in the world when it was built in the nineteenth century. It was gutted during World War II. A glass elevator takes you up to a tiny observation deck that you may have to yourself, but that can...More

This was an excellent place to visit. The best viewpoint in the city and a great relic of Hamburg’s WW2 past.

What's left of this building is gorgeous. Such interesting architecture and detail. I recommend you go check it out and ride up to the top of the tower, about 5 Euro. The view is fantastic and its a little terrifying to be high up in...More

Major landmark in Hamburg city. Only the tower remains almost intact, the nave was destroyed during WW2 bombing. Lots of interesting but sad history displayed on the site. Museum and bell tower viewing site accessible with fee.

There is a lift inside the memorial with amazing views around Hamburg. There is only a small platform which can get crowded. The museum in the crypt shows the tragic bombing of Hamburg in 1943.

If you’d like to see all city view, visit this place. 5 euros per person to get in the elevator to go up for the view.

It's sad to see the consequences of the world war. However some part of this church are still standing regardless of the huge destruction . You can take the elevator to the top to enjoy the view of the city

A museum gives the visiter a idea of the horror of aerial warfare and what the civilian population had to endure. The lift to the top is dramatic, but wrap up on cold days as you are exposed at the top, but the views are...More

Having myself a grand child of 10, I think the Church is not really interesting for him, it's just going to the top and going to see the view.
