    Nikolaikirche

    by richiecdisc Written Mar 24, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This rebuilt 13th century church is the crowning glory of the re-developed Nikolaiviertel, an old neigborhood that houses shops, pubs, and other attractions. Though it's touristy, it has a nice old world charm if you visit it when it's not too busy.

    Nikolaiviertel (Nicolai Quarter)

    This tiny medieval-like quarter at the shore of the Spree River, with the Nikolai Church in the middle surrounded by little streets, is considered the cradle of Berlin. It got destroyed in the war, what you see now is a rebuild.

    This quartier is one of the few remains of the "old" Berlin. It seems like an island of the past in the middle of the modern Berlin. Located between the Spree River and the Alexanderplatz, is crossed by the Muhlendamm Street. Loads of typical bars, restaurants and Bier-Haus. Nikolaikirche stands in the middle.

    Nikolaiviertel
    Although I might have led you to believe that the history of Berlin started with the Cold war, it's not true (of course). Nikolaiviertel, the oldest part of the city, will show you where it all began. See the bear, the symbol of Berlin and the animal which lent the name to it, or look up for angels like I did on the photo. However, there were none around that day.

    The oldest building of Berlin (from 1230), in the center of the historic (but touristy) Nikolaiviertel. Apart from the Nikolaichurch, there are only few remnants left of the medieval Berlin.

    The Baptismal Font

    by christine.j Written Aug 23, 2006

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Inside the Nikolaikirche you can see this old baptismal font. It's from 1563 and shows paintings and ornaments all around. It's not something to be missed.

    Isn't it beautiful?

    The Gothic church of thirteenth century Nikolaykirche. It is named in honor of Sacred Nikolay - the patron of merchants and seafarers. There is a medieval city centre - Nikolayfirtel.

    The Nikolaiviertel is a recreated "touristy" area near Alexanderplatz that contains a small pedestrian zone, quaint shops (aimed toward tourists), beer gardens, etc.

    It is worth of a few pictures.

    By walking through the narrow streets of Nikolaivirtel you totally can forget that you are in such big city.

    Set on an island and surrounding the Nikolai curch, the oldest parish in town. This quarter was rebuilt in 1981-89 and is a mixture of partly refurbished historic buildings and modern appartements.

    The Nikolaiviertel is one of Berlin's oldest neighbourhood and it's elegant streets and historic buildings provide a nice contrast to the communist-style look and feel of the surrounding areas.

    In both side of this river, from the Muhlendammbrucke, you can see old Berlin (Nikolaiviertel, at the right) and the new Berlin.
