St. Nicholas Church is not to be missed in Leipzig. Moving from the station you run into it inevitably. The Church was built in 1165 after Leipzig received the status of the city. Naturally it was built in the Romanesque style. However, it looks younger...More

Nikolaikirche is a study in contrast. The gothic exterior in autumnal colours did not prepare me for the light neo classical interiors. But the enjoyment was in the surprise! The various ceiling designs are so delightful and largely washed in light summery pastel tones. The...More

It is hard to describe the beauty of this church. From the fronds leading out of the columns to the altar and the ceiling, it is simply a place of amazing beauty. When we were there two musicians were practicing for a concert with the...More

We used the audio tour of the church. It was well worth the time as you were given such great insight into the history of the church and the people of Leipzig.

Felt like the interior looks like an opera house. Love the ceiling!!! It was so relaxing, the pastel colors.

Beautiful on the outside and inside. A point you can not miss in the city. After a great story and you can still learn more about the history of music and the city.

The interior of the church was very pink (not my favorite color) with a large pipe organ. The exterior was unimpressive, but next to a nice square.

Interesting interior, but the exterior is quite normal, nothing special. Inside is the right atmosphere.

This church played a major historically role as a gathering place and the interior is simply stunning. Columns matching the one outside in the most lovely pastels. Please keep in mind that there are two major churches worth a stop in Leipzig.
