Welcome to St Michaelis Church

St Michaelis Church

St. Michaelis began as a humble church, which was extended in 1600. In 1647 construction began on the grand building that stands today. Like many important buildings in Germany, the church suffered major damage in World War II. Michaeliskircheoffers tours of the 270-foot (82m) tower; the crypt, which contains the bodies of Johann Mattheson and Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach; and there is also an interesting presentation on the history of Hamburg.

Information & Facts

Englische Planke 1a
German is the official language. English is also widely spoken and understood.

The unit of currency is the Euro (EUR), divided into 100 cents. ATMs and exchange bureaux are widely available. The major credit cards are becoming more widely accepted in many large shops, hotels and restaurants, although Germans themselves prefer to carry cash. Travellers cheques are best cashed at exchange bureaux, as banks often won't change them. The quickest and most convenient way to change money is to obtain cash from one of the ATM machines that are ubiquitous features on all German streets. Banks are closed on weekends, but exchange bureaux at airports and main railway stations are open daily from 6am to 10pm.
