Visits

Tower visit

Visit Hamburg’s most impressive observation deck in the St. Michael's tower with an unrivalled panoramic view of the city, port and beyond from 106 metres above the river Elbe. You can usually access the platform via the lift conveniently located in the lift hall on the first floor (52 steps).

With a diameter of 8 metres, the tower clock is the largest in Germany. The big hand measures 5 metres in length and the small hand 3.6 metres. Each hand weighs 130 kg. The tower features six chime bells and two clock bells.

The crypt and Hamburg HiStory film

The St. Michael's vaulted crypt is an attraction that's unique around the world. Many Hamburg inhabitants are buried here, including Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach and the church architect, Ernst Georg Sonnin. The crypt extends the full length of the nave above it and served as an air raid shelter in World War II.

Inside the crypt, you can watch the half-hour film, Hamburg HiStory, which takes you on a journey through 1,000 eventful years of history, from establishment to the present, with a focus on Hamburg and its five main churches. The film is only available in German.

The Michaelitica exhibition, which addresses the eventful history of St. Michael's, and the fascinating exhibition about the recently excavated grave finds round off the crypt visit to perfection, making it a truly unique experience.
