St. Nicholas Church, Berlin

(3.8/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
The twin spires of St. Nicholas Church, the oldest church in Germany's capital, tower above the borough of Mitte in central Berlin. Built between 1220 and 1230, it served as a Roman Catholic church until the Protestant Reformation in 1539. Today, it's owned by the government and used as an ecclesiastical museum and concert hall. Renowned for its acoustics, the church was extensively reconstructed after damage sustained in World War II, and it's now a great place to see the occasional concert. You can also see the religious artifacts that survived the war, along with informational placards detailing their history and significance. Don't forget to look up at the iconic vaulted and multicolored roof. To visit St. Nicholas Church and other attractions in Berlin, use our Berlin vacation planner.

  • Nice to see this Church of St. Nicholas in Gothic style. Built in the early 1200 and restored after World War II to have suffered major damage. Works within interesting in bronze.

  • St Nicholas Church if a simple but beautiful church. It is a good place to relax and have a way through your thoughts. 
  • Dates back to 1230 in late Gothic style this place of worship of the middle ages. During the second world war the many bombings and related fires caused major damage as the collapse of the pillars of the nave. The restoration has been much criticized, inside fine works as the bronze baptismal font of 1398 and the Baroque pulpit of 1714. You can climb the tower.
