Church and crypt tours

Tours are available on a daily basis and led by one of St Michael’s volunteer church guides. Please understand that tours are not possible inside the church during services, concerts or readings. To assist us in organising tours, we ask that you arrange an appointment for your tour either by phone or email at least two weeks in advance.

Organ tour

If you’re interested in arranging a private organ tour, please contact the St. Michael’s Music office directly. You will have the opportunity to view the different organs at St. Michael’s up close with one of the church’s musical directors and experience the unique sound first-hand.

Church tours without prior registration

Every second and fourth Thursday in the month, from 3.00 to 4.00 p.m. A subsequent crypt tour lasting approximately 30 minutes is also available.

Please note:
Church guides will wait for you at the tower till at the main entrance of the church, where payment is also accepted.
