  Nikolaikirchturm, unmissable in Augustinerstrasse
by iandsmith

St. Nicholas steeple is located at one end of Augustinerstrasse and, once you're there, it's fairly hard to miss. One thing you will miss however is the church it used to be attached to. That went in the 18th century, 1744 to be exact but, interestingly enough, a watchman used to live in the tower well into the 20th century.
Inside, on the first level, is Saint Elizabeth Chapel and it still has very old wall paintings.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
