Even though it’s one of the tallest churches in Europe, it’s easy to miss St Nicholas unless you make a point of visiting it because it’s not on the main tourist route. Most of the church was destroyed in WWll but this superb gothic tower...More

There is a good view from the top of the tower; it's pretty quick in the elevator but there are thick bars that mar the view a little. There is plenty of info available in the grounds about the church and the war that devastated...More

Lots of information in the museum, with a variety of displays. Views from the top of the tower can't be beat, and an elevator takes you up. Note the "cross of nails" near the entrance, gifted from Coventry cathedral as a reminder against war.

You stand in the shell of the former church - only the bell tower remains plus bits of the outside walls. There are some artworks around the ruins. Reminded me of Coventry - a reminder that both sides were responsible for bombing in WW2.

We visited on a warm, sunny morning. The elevator ride is quick and at the top you have good views of the city, including the Elbphilharmonie. Be sure to go across the plaza to the World War II memorial museum. It is well documented and...More

Nice view of the city. The ticket also includes access to a small nearby museum. Must have been impressive in its day.

St. Nikolai Church was the tallest structure in the world when it was built in the nineteenth century. It was gutted during World War II. A glass elevator takes you up to a tiny observation deck that you may have to yourself, but that can...More

Having myself a grand child of 10, I think the Church is not really interesting for him, it's just going to the top and going to see the view.
