Hamburg is home to a huge number of religious sites, each of which has its own unique architectural style and unique history. The beautiful Sankt-Jacobi-Kirche was built in the beginning of the 16th century. The halls of the church still keep valuable religious artifacts. In the main hall of the church you will see one of the largest baroque organs in Europe. It was donated to the church in 1693. Beautiful medieval altars are a no less remarkable element of the church. They were installed immediately after the foundation of the church.
Petrikirche is one of the oldest buildings in the city. The first chapel on the site of the modern cathedral was built yet in the 11th century. Two centuries later it was decided to rebuild the chapel and turn it into a massive church. The beautiful gothic building has survived till these days in almost original state. Its interior is still decorated with artful murals created yet in the beginning of the 15th century.
