Church from 1750 with high tower with really nice view over Hamburg. History full of unfortune and rebuilding.

Climb to the top of the tower and you will have the most amazing view of Hamburg from all sides. The ticket is 5 euro and it is definitely worth it. There is an elevator so do not be afraid of the steps. Definitely recommend!
