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.
