St. Michaelis Church at night

Magnificent view of Hamburg by night

This landmark of Hamburg, especially at night, must be one of the most romantic places you could ever find.

See this landmark of Hamburg in a completely different way. St. Michaelis Church which has one of the tallest historic spires in the world, Germany's largest church clock, the huge tower bells, the many illustrated information boards and beautiful video projections with music playing in the background exudes a particular flair at night. And the view from the viewing platform will take your breath away. From the city centre, the St. Michaelis Church can be reached in a few minutes; the Baumwall underground station and the Stadthausbrücke S-Bahn station are in the immediate proximity. Admission always closes 30 minutes before the end of the opening hours. These can be changed at very short notice if weather conditions require it. Unfortunately, advance reservations are not possible.
