Hauptkirche St. Michaelis

St. Michaelis Church is open to everyone as a place for prayer or for various musical and lecture events. Despite its size, the »Michel« is actually like a village church, and represents the spiritual centre of Hamburg’s Neustadt quarter. As the first building constructed in Hamburg after the Reformation, St. Michaelis became the youngest and biggest of the city’s five main churches in 1685.
