The View From St. Peter’s Church, Hamburg

We were only up here for a geocache. But I’m glad we climbed the 544 steps… As the city’s highest accessible viewing platform (and city’s oldest church), the climb was definitely worth the panoramic views.

The viewing platform only has space for two people, it’s like being in a cupboard in an attic! We were constantly having to shuffle carefully as we switched window views.

I love these little circular ship-like windows which frame the city streets and buildings below including the magnificent city hall and River Elbe.

There are a number of viewing platforms in Hamburg including the Elbphilharmonie, but none compare to the experience of St. Peter’s Church.

Check the St. Peter’s church website for opening times.
