Located in Central Berlin in the borough of Mitte, Nikolaikirche (St. Nicholas’ Church) is the oldest church in the city. The church was built in the early 13th century and is the centrepiece of Nikolaiviertel, an area of the city known for its restored medieval buildings. Nikolaikirche has enjoyed a rich and tumultuous history that nearly ended when it was almost destroyed during World War II. The church was restored in the 1980’s, keeping with the gothic architectural style that the building is known for, and its acoustics offer the perfect location for concerts and symphonies.
- Visit the Holy Museum found inside of Nikolaikirche, in commemoration of 16th and 17th century Berlin artists, which contains many important paintings from that period.
- Admire the ornate façade of Our Lady’s Chapel that was added to Nikolaikirche in 1452 and offers a glimpse of Berlin’s famous gothic medieval style.
- Enjoy a moment of reverent silence inside the main chapel where a bare altar is surrounded by detailed frescoes and colourful glass ornaments.
Berlin is noted for its efficient and cheap public transportation so getting to Nikolaikirche should not be difficult. If you are near Alexanderplatz the Nikolaikirche is just a five-minute walk away. The wide, promenades of Nikolaiviertel are perfect for walking, which will give you a chance to soak up the authentic and replicated gothic buildings that are sprinkled throughout the area. The U-Bahn has a stop nearby at the Klosterstrasse station that is just a short walk away. The Berlin Airport is just 8 kilometres away from the central station and is best reached by bus.
