The Church of St Michael is quite distinctive in its silhouette.Its rounded spire sports a clock.It is one of the largest Lutheran churches of Hamburg and therefore should be part of your itinerary.It is dedicated to the archangel Michael.A big statue of Michael slaying the Devil stands above the Church's front entrance and inside the church too, one finds similar figurines.The interior of the Church is magnificent in every way.White and gold feature prominently in its interiors and provide a wonderful contrast to the darkly, ornate pews.
You can take the lift or stairs up to the top of the Church steeple for a fee.I thoroughly recommend doing so, as you get panoramic views of the city, especially of the River Elbe, Elbe Philharmonic Hall, Speicherstadt and the Docks. A statue of Martin Luther stands to the left of the Church, might be of some interest to those who are interested in prominent, historical figures.
