Churches in Hamburg

Main churches in Hamburg

The large churches in Hamburg defy almost every urban development. They are witnesses of the past, places of faith and landmarks of our city. The churches in Hamburg today are no longer just places of prayer or refuge. They exert a unique fascination that fascinates both Hamburgers and their guests. Standing in front of one of these churches, which are as majestic as they are ancient, one suddenly becomes aware of their true greatness. The real dizziness only becomes apparent when you climb up the towers, which are up to 147 metres high. But it's worth the effort: nowhere else in Hamburg does one have such a clear and wide view of the city.
