The landmark of Hamburg

Without a doubt the church of St. Michaelis is Hamburg's landmark no. 1. The tower of the main church is 132 meters high and the skyline of Hamburg would be inconceivable without it. The church towers above most of the city's buildings and is therefore a good landmark if you are travelling in Hamburg.


Some even say it is the most beautiful church in northern Germany. It is a baroque church with a prominent dome. Especially interesting is the tower covered with copper plates, which offers a great view. At a height of 82 metres you can see the whole of Hamburg and also the largest tower clock in Germany, which is 8 metres tall. If it is appropriate, you should definitely listen to the chorales of the Michel-Trumpeter. He blows every day at 10:00 and 9:00, and Sunday at 12:00. Before you climb the tower, you can see the copper archangel Michael above the main entrance. He is the patron saint of many professions, especially knights and soldiers.

Special atmosphere due to three large organs

Inside the church there are three church organs, which make the heart of every music lover beat faster. The largest organ was built in 1961 and has a remarkable 5 manuals. There's always an organ player playing at 12 noon. This sound creates a special atmosphere in the white nave.

You can also visit the crypt vault, which runs under the entire nave.
