The Nicholas Gate and adjacent Nicholas church make a very photogenic couple.
The church dating back to 1180 is said to be the last Romanesque church built in Thuringia. It used to be the parish church for the Benedictine convent which had existed here before the Reformation. It underwent alterations at the end of the 19th century.
The impressive Nicholas Gate is the only preserved one of the original five Romanesque gates leading to the town.
