There was an instantaneous sense of peace, tranquility and humility when I walked into this gorgeous small church. It wasn't ostentatious or over the top, didn't feel pompous or that you were intruding. The simplicity and quaintness provided a warmth - comfort perhaps you could say. Just stunning.

A touch of medieval Frankfurt. Worth a stop. Good place to rest and meditate if on your own in the city.

Lovely old church right next to part of the Christmas Market. It has some beautiful stained glass windows and thank goodness was not damaged in the Second World War. Nice to pop in to get away from the hustle and bustle going on outside.

During our week in Frankfurt, we visited Old St. Nicholas Church (Alte Nikolaikirche), a Lutheran medieval church located near the Römer city hall in Frankfurt’s Old Town (Altstadt). The interior is not all that impressive, but the church is worth visiting because of its history.

The windows and decor are worth the visit and look around. It is well kept and easy access in the Romer area. We were there during the week so there was no problem with services.

A beautiful little church situated in the middle of the square, built in the 15th century, it looks like a castle from fairy tales. Its a must visit.
