Although the interiors are nice. The building itself doesn´t have much to see. I saw may other churches in Hamburg that are much nicer than this.
I've been to quite a few churches in Germany, and this is one of the prettier ones on the inside (though not as beautiful as the Frauenkirche in Dresden). We also walked the 400-some steps to the top. The steps are wider than many of the staircases at castles and other churches, so the walk to the top was pleasant.... More
The biggest church in Hamburg. You can see it almost from everywhere, so you cannot miss it. The impressive spire and Archangel Michael welcomes you on the entrance while having thrown down the devil, ready to impale the fallen one.

Even for agnostics or members of non christian religions a visit is worthwhile. I have visited many churches worldwide, but St.Michaels, even its not a comparable gigantic monument, represents architecture, history and mysticism.

We spent daytime and nighttime here and liked it. The tower visit in clear weather gives the best views of Hamburg (expect it to be windy!). At €5 each be also thought it was good value.

We stayed in Hamburg for a few days after our riverboat trip down the Elbe. The Church of St Michael was on every list we saw, so we went. Church is very beautiful. Although after 3 weeks in Poland and Germany, we'd seen our share of beautiful churches. Small fee to take the elevator to the steeple tower (one of... More
Many times I have visited this lovely icon in Hamburg, either to climb to the top in younger years or to get lost in the history depicted in the main body of the church. This time though we decided that the crypt was something not yet discovered by us. It is well worth the time taken to view the old... More
