“Great view from the top”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2014

Very nice church with the benefit of a great view albeit with a lot of stairs.
Good location on the way back from St Pauli to the City centre.

“Definitely worth a visit if you are in Hamburg”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2014

A fantastic church and worth a visit to the crypt and tower. I don't like heights but the view across the city is fantastic.

The crypt is simply incredible.

“Nice views from the tower”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2014

Got the lift to the top of the tower for some spectacular views of the city. Not much in the way of a museum but the church is very nice inside. Didnt have time to visit the crypt,but not bad for 5 euros.

“Atmospheric church”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2014

This was an amazing place to visit! Inside it takes your breath away, the beauty if it!!! All gold leaf and white paint. They have an amazing altar and huge organ. Interestingly the place has been rebuilt about three times if memory serves, once because of a lightening strike, once due to fire, once due to bombs in war!! Took some panoramic pics which I will try to post. Well worth an hours visit.
