What people are saying:

The Church of St. Nicholas used to be the tallest building in the world, and most of it was destroyed by bombing in World War II. The removal of rubble only left its tombs, grounds, and towering towers. Most of the towers were hollow, leaving only a large number of bells. These ruins continue to serve as memorials and important architectural landmarks. The remains of the church tower are now the second tallest building in Hamburg.

Additional Information


Today's St. Nicholas Church was a Gothic building that was rebuilt after the fire in 1842. The original church was built in the 12th century. The church rebuilt in 1874 was the landmark of Hamburg's air raids during World War II due to its tall spires. The spire and part of the vertical wall have not been bombed and have been preserved to this day. The church has not been restored, but it has been designed to maintain the ruin of the post-war ruins. It has become a building to commemorate the victims and victims of the war and to reflect on the war.
