The St. Nikolai-Kirche, (Nikolaikirche or St. Nicholas' Church) is the oldest church in Berlin, the capital of Germany. The church is located in the eastern part of central Berlin, the borough of Mitte. The area around the church, bounded by Spandauer Straße, Rathausstraße, the River Spree and Mühlendamm, is known as the Nikolaiviertel 'Nicholas quarter', and is an area of restored medieval buildings (in some cases recent imitations). The church was built between 1220 and 1230, and is thus, along with the Church of Our Lady at Alexanderplatz not far away, the oldest church in Berlin.
Originally a Roman Catholic church, the Church of St. Nicholas became a Lutheran church after the Protestant Reformation in the Electorate of Brandenburg in 1539. In the 17th century, the prominent hymn-writer Paul Gerhardt was the minister of this church, and the composer Johann Crueger was musical director. The prominent Lutheran theologian Provost Philipp Jacob Spener was the minister from 1691 to 1705. From 1913 to 1923, the minister at the Church of St. Nicholas was Wilhelm Wessel, whose son Horst Wessel later became famous as a Nazi: the family lived in the nearby Jüdenstraße.

Such a cute little neighborhood. You have the impression you are in a small German village 🇩🇪🏘️ very different from modern Berlin. The church ⛪ itself is impressive, the oldest in Berlin, even survived the wars. Few steps from Alexander platz. Worth visiting even just by passing by.

Fantastic hotel rooms spacious and airy. However if your a coffee or tea lover then you will be disappointed with complementary tea and coffee but otherwise enjoyable stay :=)

Beautiful architecture and a nice place to rest. Birhaus is just next to it.

Very central and fascinating at all seasons. Take some time to visit and read also what is around it to learn some of local history. Planning to visit the museum soon :)
