St. Nikolai am Klosterstern

The St. Nikolai church at Klosterstern in the Hamburg district of Harvestehude was officially opened in 1962 as a replacement for the old St. Nikolai on Hopfenmarkt: the original church suffered heavy war damage, and its ruin still stands as a memorial. In addition to regular services of worship, music at St. Nikolai revolves around performances of oratorios from the early baroque to the modern era.
