St. Nikolai Memorial

About us: St. Nikolai Memorial is Hamburg’s most important memorial dealing with the war and its dictatorship during 1933-1945. The original main church was destroyed in the air raids on Hamburg in 1943.

Museum: In the church ruins a museum reminds us of the disastrous air war over Europe.  It questions the impact of war in former as well as in present times and deals with aspects of the memories of the victims of World War II.

Viewing Tower: A glass elevator takes visitors up the fifth highest church tower in the world.  A viewing platform at 76 metres overlooks the harbour,  the Alster lakes and Hamburg’s city centre. Historical photos of past destruction add up to the impressions. Open regardless of reconstruction work!

Events: Our program offers discussions in current events,  supports research on German history and promotes international peace movements/  peace and understanding of nations.
