The Stadtkirchenturm (town church tower) is the town landmark of the town of Gießen. With its height of 50.70 metres it dominates the townscape.
The "Stadtkirchenturm" is reminding of an old town church, which was destroyed during the bombing raid on December 6th, 1944. The church tower was damaged during the war, but was later restored. Today, the town church tower, which has been home to St. Michael's Chapel again since the early 1950s, belongs to the town's landmarks.
The church square, redesigned in the course of the State Garden Show 2014, is now a popular meeting place in the city centre.  From the tower the view over Gießen is of course first class.  In addition, the chapel in the tower is open Tuesdays to Fridays from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. From Monday to Friday tower prayers take place from 6 p.m.
Those who would like to enjoy the view over Gießen will receive the key to the tower for a deposit in Wallenfels' House at Kirchenplatz 6 from Tuesdays to Sundays from 10 a.m. to 3.30 p.m.  During the midday ringing (12:00 - 12:05) a visit is not possible.
