The place in Hamburg for the best views of the city is St. Michael’s Cathedral due to the height of the bell tower. Since we were only in Hamburg for three days, we didn’t have the luxury of waiting for a clear day like we did when we went up Berlin’s TV Tower, but it was still nice to see the city from up there. Hamburg is a port city, and we could see water from almost every viewpoint. They didn’t have the neighborhood descriptions like in Berlin, but I could still see distinctly different parts of town pretty easily.

St. Michael’s Cathedral is located at Englische Planke 1, 20459 Hamburg. Tickets to go up the tower cost 5€ per person. For more information check out their website here, though it is in German. We had to wait in a short line for the elevator to get up to the top, but I imagine the line is longer during the summer and on sunnier days, so plan accordingly.
