A neo Gothic Church ruins merely with a skeletal window frames is one of Hamburg's famous building.This church was revived after a devastating city-wide fire in 1842. It was heavily damaged once again in 1943 by Allied bombing. Much of the ruins were cleared in the 1950s, leaving the tower to stand alone. The parish of St. Nikolai rebuilt in a different location. In 2001 the church was restored and a platform in 75-m height was repaired to enable visitors to enjoy the splendid view over the city and port of Hamburg.
This is the third highest church tower in Germany spirals up to an impressive 147-m height.
