The church ifself is empty. The church tower is not very tall, beside part of the church covers one side of a view. But you could see the harbour and it is quite nice.

This church has only been reconstructed (after wartime damage) quite recently. It is quite empty and almost stark. This adds to its beauty - and highlights quite how many bricks must have been used. We did not go up the tower but I expect the...More

A vast open space which has been transformed into a theatre / concert hall by clever use of mechanical dividers. The height of the building is quite overwhelming and worth seeing for that reason alone.

You can't miss this massive church when you are driving into Wismar but when you come across it from the lane, you can truly see the massive scale. But go inside and the loftiness and just plain massive inside is mind blowing. This is a...More

We were in Wismar for part of the day, and walked past this large building on the way to other things. We looked and noticed the largely empty interior and continued on our way. Having read other reviews, we wish that we had planned better...More

This church is an impressive building. However, the church is now used for theater and concerts, which is much better than a grand building being destroyed! So do not go in looking for artwork.

It is well worth paying the 3 euros per head to go up in the glass lift to the observation platform at the top of this church. The views really are astounding. We could even see the funnel of the cruise liner that we had...More

Don't expect paintings and statues. The building itself is empty, but nevertheless impressive. For €3 admission you can also take the elevator to the viewing platform. Great view over Wismar. Worth coming. There are concerts in the church on ocassions.

It is possible to go up the tower of this church (which is actually used as an event hall) by an elevator. The views over old Wismar and the harbor are great. Wismar visitors should go up there. pore
