It's looming brown dome and clock tower beckon out to greet all who visit the fair city of Hamburg. You can't miss it - you wouldn't want to... It has old-world charm, nouveau renaissance appeal, and a bold uniqueness that sets it apart from all the other chuch towers that are sprinkled in cityscapes of Hamburg and most every other European city. From a distance, it is impressive, but up close, it is a wonder. It is an architectural masterpiece, and, of course, it is a functioning church, with a massive organ, striking bells, and a spiraling tower which you can climb to get one of the best views of the entire city of Hamburg, the Elbe, the Alster, and beyond. If you ever get a chance to experience a concert here, please go - you will not be disappointed. Due to its beauty, its welcoming location, its command of the skyline, and its honored spot in Hamburg's heart, I think locals as well as visitors would agree that St. Michaelis is truly Hamburg's Most Beloved Landmark.
