The Old St Nicholas Church is a Lutheran church in Frankfurt's Altstadt that dates from the 15th century. Fortunately, it suffered relatively minor damage during WW2 bombing and has retained most of its original features. Worth a visit.

This church is one of the main contributors to the charm of the Römer square. It is small but very beautiful. and some of its stained glass are real masterpieces. Of course a visit to the church means a visit to the square. They come in one package.

What a gorgeous square, full of events and sympathetically restored old buildings facing the gorgeous town tall for Frankfurt. The Christmas market here is always lovely, day and night this square and its lovely church is full of people, traditional german restaurants and so on. Highly recommended on your visit to Frankfurt.

It's just simple and tiny church in the corner edge of Römer square. However, it has quite spiritual atmosphere. I recommend to take a short break sitting on the bench in the church and look around Stained glasses.

I was visited the Romer with my boyfriend, from the first time we steped the altstadt it took me back to a different age of time. like I been in middle aged. Apart from all the beautiful things to see in the Romer Square, my eyes glued to charming lutheran medieval church The Old St. Nikolai Church, or Alte Nikolaikirche.... More

The church is simple and not sophisticated inside. It is one of the buildings to see around the Romer Square.
