Kramer Widow’s Apartment

The Grocers’ Institute houses are located beside St. Michaelis Church in Hamburg, and they are the last remaining example of a formerly typical Hamburg residential complex from the 17th century...

In 1375, small retailers (grocers) who owned permanent stands or shops in the city, and primarily traded in spices, silk fabrics and hardware, joined together and formed the Grocers' Institute. This affluent professional organisation erected 20 free apartments for the widows of deceased members on the grounds near St. Michaelis Church.

The rows of houses with the narrow alleyway between them served the same purpose as a home for the elderly up until 1968. With the involvement of the office for the protection of historic monuments, the building was restored by 1974 and the individual homes have been let.

One of the historic houses has been preserved in its original condition and has been completely furnished by the Hamburg Museum with items from the period circa 1850/60. It conveys a living, "up close" impression of the simple and humble life of that period.

Hamburg Michel St. Michaelis Church

Hamburg has many large churches - but only one "Michel": On its platform 106 metres high, there is a fabulous (and breezy) view of Hamburg, the port and the surrounding countryside - one that should not be missed!

Hamburgs "Tele-Michel" Television Tower

Outstanding! You can see him from every corner of the city: Hamburg's television tower, or as the inhabitants affectionately call it, the "Tele-Michel". The television tower is one of Hamburg's landmarks and today only serves as a radio tower.

The main church at Klosterstern. St. Nikolai

St. Nikolai - the name represents an extremely changeful church history. The principal church of St. Nikolai was built during the time of the settlement of the new city in the 12th century, and by 1353 had been extended to become a triple naved basilica in the Gothic style - it was then completely destroyed in the Great Fire of Hamburg in 1842.
