Old Nicholas Church (Alte Nikolaikirche), Frankfurt

4.1
Relatively small in size but steeped in history, Old Nicholas Church (Alte Nikolaikirche) was once the church of city leaders and today serves as the home of the local Lutheran congregation. This double-aisle Early Gothic church was mentioned as early as the 13th century, but it is believed that the core of the structure is considerably older. The church is noted for its 47-bell harmonic carillon, Gothic roof gallery, and 14th-century entryway sculptures. Though the substructure of the church's iconic tower was constructed around 1240, the higher stories likely were added during a reconstruction in the 1440s. Throughout the summer months, the church hosts a variety of concerts; visit the official website to see exactly which special events you can attend during your stay.

  • Very simple, adiakosmiti,-internal and external-Evangelical Church, but in very nice location, opposite the Town Hall, and with great historic value. Watch the beautiful organ. After its destruction in Wwii, received extensive repairs in 1951. Then it was decided to be placed above the main entrance to the original bas-relief from the 13th century. See anyway.
