Great view from the church tower
Jun 2021
Don't just visit the inside of the church. Go up the church tower. Because of the corona restrictions you can use the elevator to get to the top. The view is amazing. You can see all of Hamburg from above. On the way back you take the stairs and you pass the church bells.

Well worth the climb to the tower & oldest crypts in north europe
Feb 2020
St Michaelis Church - wow! This church has gone through so much, its been destroyed by fire numerous times yet its always rebuilt with love and gets better every time.

A beautiful baroque church and holds the largest crypt in northern Europe, the tower is well worth the climb, the views are fantastic!

100% recommend to do the climb up to the tower and check out the view its so worth it! Make sure to see the crypt as well if possible - I loved every bit of this church, the view from the top down inside the church is amazing as well

One of those must-see

This is one of those must-see in Hamburg. Even with corona-time, they arranged pretty good the cueing and such. The view is nice and easy to go up.

I haven't got to see inside the church so my ratings is based on how the church look like outside. Design wise, it's just an average.

Great self guided tour
Jul 2020
Great self guided tour if you download the app. Also it is worth it to go up to see the city. You go up using a lift and go down with the stairs

do not hesitate with the entrance fee - it is worth it.
Jun 2020
We sometimes hesitate with admission prices, is it really VALUE now? Here one should not hesitate - it is worth going up the tower. Ingenious fast ride up. And a view over TOTAL HAMBURG, which we don't get from elsewhere. After you've had plenty of time to look around, you go back down the stairs and experience many details and impressions, e.g. the clockwork, the bells, ... etc.
But also the actually sacral building must be visited. A beautiful baroque building, which embodies Hamburg, visible from far away. The balance between iconoclasm and baroque elements has been maintained in the church. A very pleasant sacred space, for which donations are requested.

Great view from the church tower
Jul 2020 • Couples
Because of corona we had to wait in line for about an hour.

But it was worth the waitingtime. You get a really nice view over the city.

The church is also worth a visit

Come down through the stairs
Feb 2020 • Couples
Amazing building. We started with a quick visit inside the church which is very beautiful with four different organs. Then we took the lift to the tower where you have a great 360 degrees view of the city. But the must to do is coming down from the top by the stairs. There are several stages with different information and details of the tower/church which you will miss if coming up and down through the lift. There is a fee of 6 € to go to the top of tower. Definitely recommended.
