Nicholas Quarter, Berlin

#5 of 16 in Neighborhoods in Berlin
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.

    Really nice place. Among the narrow streets paved with cobblestones, you can admire the imposing church of San Nicolas, bella. Classic gardenia and running is also a great entertainment for children.

    We were once walking in the Nikolai quarter, are going to church, wandered through the streets, and have drunk in the beer garden of the brewery something. The shops, streets and restaurants are all very welcoming. It goes comfortably to the cobblestone streets and small alleys. On the last day we had from the Spree from views of the area from the boat. The Nikolai quarter is worth a visit, you should also look off the pitch in the Centre of the many.

    Pretty small area Nikolai Church, little bit far away from the hustle and bustle of Berlin. Cafés, restaurants and souvenir shops to the browse and linger a. Part of the history of Berlin in any case.

Where to stay in Berlin

The Kreuzberg neighborhood near the Oberbaumbrüke bridge is central and full of Berlin icons: street art, a piece of the Berlin Wall, the East Side Gallery, and a proliferation of cafes. Friedrichshain is another option with a hip vibe due to the students who congregate at its cafes and galleries. Consider Mitte as a historic home base. Mitte is the area where almost all of Berlin's well-known buildings are located, and it is within walking distance of Alexanderplatz. For a peaceful residential area, try Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf where the streets are lined with boutiques and quiet coffee shops.
