Interior of church is beautiful but the highlight is really to climb the tower. It cost EUR 3 per pax and more than 340 steps from the ground up but the view is worth the effort and penny. It gets crowded on sunny day so...More

Interesting and beautiful architecture both inside and out. Definitely worth a look. The acoustics just inside the entry are incredible.

I found this large church while exploring Hamburg.It is located a few blocks from the Rathaus. Its tall single spire makes it stand out over the other buildings on the street.

This is a beautiful and impressive church, located next to a busy square. Both the exteriors and the interiors of the church are lavish. During our visit, there was a rehearsal of a group of elderly people playing brass instruments, which proved to be fantastic,...More
