"Nikolaiviertel - Nicholas Quarter" Nicholas' Quarter Tip by sue_stone
Nicholas' Quarter, Berlin: 34 reviews and 54 photos
Located close to Alexanderplatz is the lovely Nikolaiviertel (Nicholas Quarter). Although it looks old, this area was completely re-created in 1987-88.
Its maze of little streets and medieval houses were created by architects to celebrate the 750th anniversary of the foundation of Berlin.
It is a great place to have a wander around, perhaps browse in some of the shops or stop off for a meal at one of the inviting looking restaurants.
Dominating the quarter is the Nikolaikirche (church), with its tall, thin twin spires. The church is Berlins oldest - built between 1220-1230 - though there has been several modifications to its appearance since then. Today the church is a museum and also a concert hall. It is appreciated by the experts because of its amazing acoustics.
