Information for travel groups

Are you planning a group trip to St. Michael’s? We look forward to seeing you here!

We have compiled the following list of tips and helpful hints:

  • If possible, set aside some time for our daily midday prayer service, which lasts about 20 minutes, so you can take in the organ music and the church interior. The service is usually held at 12.00 p.m. daily.
  • On Saturdays between Easter and the end of September, you and your group can enjoy our pedal point organ concert (Orgelpunkt), which features a brief spiritual message and lasts approximately 40 minutes. You and your group are sure to be delighted!
  • Please bear in mind that you may not visit the church when events are being held. We therefore ask that you consult the list of calendar events shortly before your visit. Here we try to include all events that require us to close the church.
    During the summer months, weddings are often held in the church on Saturdays. You can usually still look into the church, but you may not walk around inside.
  • You may choose to conduct your own tours, or we would also be happy to take your group on a tour of the church and crypt. Feel free to contact us for more information.
  • There is limited parking space for buses on Krayenkamp street, where you will also find large toilet facilities.
  • We offer unique programmes to school groups in years 3 and 4: St. Michael’s Explorers and the Church Bell Workshop. 

If you have tips for other groups, please feel free to share them with us.
