This Lutheran church was badly damaged during the war and subsequently decommissioned. More recently it became a historical site, a combination art gallery and museum. A special exhibition on Luther, "Verehrt, verklaert, verkehrt," arranged in connection with the 500th anniversary of the 95 theses that...More

St Nicholas Church is a great looking building in the wonderful historical area of Berlin. This is no longer a practicing church with the last service taking place in the 1930's but more of a museum ,it's a fabulous looking museum and the twin spires...More

The church inside is architecturally stunning. Very ornate,light and very interesting. There is a fee to access, and is very popular.

Amazing building, hidden in a small square. We arrived too late to go in, but entry is possible. Area around church is frozen in the past.

The two spears caught my attention and we walked inside for a look. I found a guy who told me about the history of the church.

This is now a museum so we chose not to pay the entry. You can see most of it when you enter without paying the fee. The St Nicholas Quarter is delightful.

Thanks for the review. For a 5€ fee you'll get an audio guide in 6 different languages. You can also discover the history of the building and the city of Berlin inside the exhibition.

This is a chance to visit a remmnant of old Berlin dating back to 1220. The Communists did a good job restoring it in the 1980s. The church is now a museum. The area around is near the river and has several charming micro breweries.

The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights
like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum
Island. The central location makes this one of the
city's most expensive places to live. It is here the
oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence
of some significant transformations, as well. The
