Hamburg City Tour 1st part; Inside St. Nikolai and St. Mikaelis Church

Central Europe 6th part: 5-days in traveling solo in Germany
October 20 to October 24, 2013


Hamburg's city scape is shaped by the steeples of the main churches. I went to this churches again by self-guided walk with a map provided by the Hostel.

St. Michael Church is one of Hamburg's five Lutheran main churches and the most famous church in the city. St. Michaelis is a landmark of the city. It is dedicated to the Archangel Michael and has a viewing deck platform 109 meters above the Elbe. There is an elevator access for this. 5 Euro entrance fee. The "Michel" with its tower is the true landmark of Hamburg. Enjoy the view from the tower, visit the church and the crypt.

St. Nikolai museum and observation tower has also an admission fee of 5 Euro. Museum in the crypt of the church destroyed in 1943. Panorama lift up to one of the World's highest Church towers with impressive view of Hamburg. The altar mosaic is worth sight seeing and is from  design of Oskar Kokoschka.
