Hamburg has a special place in my heart ... having lived there as a family (immediately prior to moving to California) for 8 years. Each year I attend a major industry exhibition held in Hamburg and so get the opportunity to revisit some of my favorite places. One of these is the St. Nikolai Memorial. The 360° views from the spired tower across Hamburg are incredible.

Bombing of Hamburg during World War II destroyed the bulk of the church and its rubble was removed leaving its crypt, its site and tall spired tower, largely hollow, save for a large set of bells, together serving as a memorial and an important architectural landmark.
