St. Michaelis Church

Hamburg Welcome Tour

The historic landmark of Hamburg in the pre-Christmas gloss: 

The main church St. Michael’s!

In December the Hamburg Welcome Center invites you to discover Hamburg’s historic landmark – the main church St. Michael’s – decked in festive pre-Christmas ambiance! It begins with our English-guided tour through the church, which is one of the most beautiful protestant baroque churches in Germany. The nave impresses with its brilliant white, sparkling gold and gleaming marble. Following this, we will visit the burial crypts beneath St. Michael’s. With its architectural design and proportions, it is one of the most impressive gravesites in the world.

For the grand finale we take the elevator to the top of the tower of St. Michael’s. From the viewing platform at 106 meters altitude we can enjoy a breathtaking and lovely view of the illuminated City of Hamburg and the cultural landmark of our city – the Elbphilharmonie!

We look forward to sharing another part of Hamburg with you!
