"St. Nikolai" St. Nikolai Kirche Tip by antistar
St. Nikolai Kirche, Hamburg: 13 reviews and 33 photos
Like Coventry Cathedral in England, the ruins of St. Nikolai have been preserved as a reminder of the horrors of war. The church was once the tallest building in the world, but the firebombings of Operation Gomorrah in 1943 gutted the once proud church and left it a burned out shell. In the grounds of the church are memorials to the tens of thousands who died. But there's also a lighter side. The spire of the church remains, and a glass elevator has been built inside. You can ride it to the top for outstanding views of the city.
Directions: U1 to Messberg.
