“A great view”
Reviewed December 6, 2013

Take a few minutes to visit here. This church was destroyed by bombing raids in 1943. Only the spire and parts of the outer wall remain. The ruins now stand as a memorial. Take the elevator to the top of the spire where you will find a photographic display depicting the history of the church. It also offers a great view over Hamburg.

“Very Humbling”
Reviewed November 23, 2013

For 5 euros you get a panomaric lift for 360deg and a visit to the museum underground. It is aways humbling to experience the sad history of Germany and this city's experience is showcased in this destroyed church.
