St. Nikolaikirche is said to be the oldest church in Berlin, built between 1220-1230. The Our Lady Chapel on the right was added in 1452. Located on a picturesque pedestrian street in the borough of Mitte, it was originally a Catholic Church but became a...More

The church has been rebuilt due to damage during WWII and this is clearly visible from the outside with the differing brickwork. In my opinion it's not that impressive but the little village surrounding the church is really cool (see pics). There is also a...More

Visited this church as it’s right next to the tv tower. It says in the tour books it’s 5 Euro to get in however we went in free. The alter is nice and the rest is quite basic. It’s not a quiet church so if...More

This once church now serves as a dull museum. As we were not interested in the museum itself, we enjoyed the tranquility of the church for what it once was.

Reading the majority of reviews about this church you notice that a lot of people have got this St Nikolai in Spandau confused with the St Nicholas Church in the Nikolvietel area in Mitte. The church looks amazing and on my visit was under some...More

Nice church in Spandau If you have seen the citadel of Spandau the the Nikolai church is a nice follow up on the way into the Altstadt. Absolutely worthwhile, a combination of roman style made with gazillions of bricks.

We stumbled across this church when reading the museum pass book and decided to visit. This church was severely damaged during WW2. The architecture of this church is spectacular and well worth the visit. We loved the collection of old documents and coins some dating...More

You can see from far away the two tower of Nikolai church. This is the middle of Nikolai district. There is a very good little museum about the history of the church.

History is my thing, so I found the artifacts and stories about them very informative. The entry fee includes an audio tour available in multiple languages. The staff speaks little english, so the audio is important. The artifacts relate to the specific history of this...More
