It's a very old, very big, and a pretty church in the center of the city next to the Haffen City area and in the middle of a bit office building district.

Saint Catherine is anything but baroque fireworks. Historical reference to the Reformation in all its glory (you don't get much of that in the church), this sacred space leaves you rather perplexed in its dimension and nakedness. We think you can do without the visit.

Raised in the 13th century, St. Katharine's Church traditionally served as the fishermen's church. Partially distroyed during an air ride during the WW2, it was rebuilt, however, the outer wall and the base of its spire are original. Ornated with angels and the priceless wood carved figure St. Katherine, the interior finishes date from the late 20th-century reconstruction of the medieval church.

St. Catherine's Church is one of the five main churches and was a profile for sailors. Sea service is full of dangers, so sailors are superstitious people and attended Church before sailing. I didn't go inside. God did not save the Church during operation Gomorrah. American B-17s and British Lancasters were stronger than divine intercession and on July 30, 1943 left only the outer wall of St. Catherine. The reconstruction of 1950-1956 appears before us .

… Otherwise a pretty unadorned church displaying essential architecture. Nice organ, light but rather bare interior.

This was just around the corner from our hotel so we thought we really should check this out. What a beautiful church. Heavily damaged in WWII and rebuilt since this is a peaceful oasis in a lovely building. Beautiful glass stained window and ceilings and we were so lucky to be here during organ practice when music filled the whole building. Beautiful.

One of the five most important churches in Hamburg.The spire is one of the most beautiful in town.Unfortunately it wasn't opened for visitors,only pre-booked guided visit was available.The interior is not very spectacular,only the stained glasses and the organ are distinguished.Across the street you can find 'Speicherstadt" ,the warehouses district,now transformed into an interesting area of offices buildings and residential area.

I passed by this church while heading for the warehouse area of Hamburg and stopped to take some photos, then entered the church and was impressed with the display about the history of the church in the entrance vestibule and the original bell which had been recovered from the ruins following the allied Bombing

I would certainly add this to a Hamburg Itinerary

Very impressed with the inside of this church. Not only does it have a pretty ceiling but it also has a lot of original artwork, making it rather like an art gallery.
