“Jaw-dropping”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

Ginormous Protestant church, full-on lavish baroque style, wonderfully ornate pews. Looks more like a theater than a church.

“Number one Church in Hamburg”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2013

Most beautiful curch in Hamburg!!! Both outside and definetly inside!!! With unexplainable atmosphere of lightness and peace! It feels very well in compare with medieval gothic churches... St. Michael is excellent example of baroque stile in religious architecture.
The tower (of course) offers you good view to the Hamburg Hafen. It's terribly cold in winter in the viewpoint, but the view worth climbing =) I saw some kind of bar on my way upstairs (right incide of the tower! but noone was there, though lights were on).

Important thing - you can pay for the souvenirs and visiting viewing platform with the credit card - pretty rare thing in Hamburg!

“Must see when in Hamburg”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2012

It is a beautiful church! The inside is even more prettier. And if you buy a ticket then you can go up to the tower which has amazing view over Hamburg.

“Beautiful views of the harbor at dusk!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2012

For a few Euros, you can take the tower elevator to the top of the bell tower. This gives you a 360 degree view of the city and the harbor. It is a beautiful view of the copper roofs that Hamburg is famous for. The water is especially beautiful right before sunset, and you can get some great photographs of the container ships, wind turbines, and docks.

The interior of the church is beautiful, but not as impressive as the Rococo or Baroque cathedrals further south. I attended a musical service for Christmas, and it was well worth sitting through a sermon in a foreign language!
