Full description

Join us on a guided walking tour centred around Hamburg’s most beautiful churches. For a city that was so heavily damaged during WWII, these religious buildings hold a very special role in preserving Hamburg’s history and culture. You will get the best experience with a Private Guide who will blow your mind with the fascinating facts about the city.

This tour covers the best highlights of Hamburg’s Old Town. You will meet with your Local Guide in front of the esthetical Town Hall on the market square. St Peter’s Church is only a couple of steps away. This red brick Gothic church is the oldest parish church in Hamburg, dating back to 1195. You will be amazed by the beautiful stained glass windows and spectacular paintings inside.

You will then visit the St Nicholas Memorial. The church was almost completely destroyed during the Operation “Gomorrah.” The remaining ruins serve as a memorial to the horrors of the war, but even from the ruins only, you can still imagine what a majestic structure it used to be. In the 19th century, for a short time it was the world’s tallest building and you can use the elevator to get on top of the remaining spiral tower for some amazing views of the city. Alternatively, you can choose to visit the tower of St Michaels, which will be the last stop of this tour.

Before St Michaels however, you will stop at St Catherine’s Church. The church is an unmissable landmark of Hambugs skyline due to its high belltower. It’s a lovely building with simplistic interiors: white washed walls, brick floors and a historic timber organ that J.S. Bach played during his stay in Hamburg. St Michaels, on the other hand, is known for its rich interior architecture and luxurious decorations. You can use the elevator to reach the top of its baroque copper-covered spire for the breathtaking panoramic view of all of Hamburg.
