The Church of St. Nicholas

Nikolaikirche – © Michael Setzpfand

When you enter the Nikolaikirche, you’re overwhelmed by the magnificent impression of space. The permanent exhibition “From the Foundations to the Twin Spires” fits unobtrusively into the church. Art works, funerary art, liturgical items and the seven interactive displays tell visitors about the history of this medieval church building and the early history of the city. Visitors are told about the hymns and poetry of the church’s pastor Paul Gerhardt.

The story of this church dedicated to St Nicholas dates back to the founding of the city in the first half of the thirteenth century. In 1809, the first elected city council for Berlin was blessed and sworn in at the church; while in 1991, the first freely elected legislature for the newly unified city of Berlin held its first meeting in the church.
