St Nicholas Church
St Nicholas Church is not only considered to be Leipzig’s most beautiful place of worship, but it’s also a place of great historical significance. The year 1989 saw tens of thousands of people gather in the church plaza for peaceful demonstrations that helped pave the way to the fall of the Berlin Wall and a reunified Germany the same year. The façade is shaped by Romanesque, Gothic and Baroque elements, and it’s worth stepping inside to view the rose-and mint-coloured stucco ornaments that climb up the columns to the vaulted ceiling. The church is open daily and can be entered for a charge of €5.
