The basics

The copper dome and gold clock of St. Michaelis’ 433-foot (132-meter) tower is a striking feature of Hamburg’s cityscape. The tower rises from a network of small alleys known as the Krameramtswohnungen, where half-timbered houses from the 17th century line the streets. The church is a popular feature on city tours of Hamburg.
