A reconstructed historic center, Nicholas Quarter of Alt-Berlin was founded in 1200. The two most well-known buildings are the Nicholas Church and the Ephraim-Palais. The latter was built for King Frederick II of Prussia's financier, Veital-Heine Ephraim. The palace was renovated in the 1980s, when it was opened to the public as a museum. Another nearby museum, the Biedermeier civic museum, is housed inside the Knoblauchhaus buildings with the Neoclassic facade. The area around these historic structures is interspersed with traditional restaurants and bars that serve up beer with a side of sauerkraut. The former prince-elector's house rests on the shores of the Spree river. Elector Eduard Knoblauch believed a white lady haunted the house, so he fled to his valet's house.

  • We loved this special district of Berlin. We wanted to go back to enjoy a night visit but did not reach us time. It looks like an osasis; everything is very special, with the Church, brick buildings, cobblestone streets, ornaments and souvenirs shops and the variety of restaurants. We were hosted at Friedrechstrasse and the road walk up there was a pleasure, on the banks of the river.

  • Nice small reconstructed area. However, the well could find areas of Berlin which is equally beautiful and more authentic. E.g. Prenzlauer Berg
