A grand church with lots of bling. Only went for the view at the top - well worth it. You can light a candle or say a prayer. Can't wear a hat inside though, unless you're the Pope.

Lot to see and learn. It's located near the neighbours and you will see regular people around and I liked that. The church it's worth seeing it, bring your camera because there is lots to take pictures to

Wow! That what you say when you enter this church. Stunning beauty. The entry to the church is free, however you are invited to donate 2€ for maintenance. And be sure to pay 5€ to get upstairs and discover the beautiful view on the city !

We were in Hamburg for the day and went to this place. The tower van be seen for some distance across the town (depending on where you are) The church itself is a classic stunning architecture and very light and airy inside. If you can time it it's best to get there for an organ demonstration. I would definitely recommend... More

There was a church service on so I couldn't visit the church, but I went up the tower and it is well worth the 5 euros. Great view of the whole of Hamburg and there is a lift if you don't fancy the stairs!

A lovely church with amazing views from the top. Worth it to get your bearings. I took the stairs up, which is slightly tiring! Get the lift back down!

Somehow, the rules for visitors are too strict. We were invited to go inside, since it was too cold, but then we could not even drink water. And one of the reasons we went inside was to escape for a bit from the cold and windy weather, so we were thirsty...

Every single aspect of this church is simply amazing. Its architecture, the history, interior and, most importantly, the tower. The view itself is quite nice but more engaging is the fact that such complex and advanced construction took place in 18th century. If you are fit enough to take the stairs up there are small exhibitions on each floor, including... More
