St. Nicholas Church - Review

Popularly known as Nikolaikirche (in Germany), St. Nicholas Church has been one of the popular churches of Leipzig for a long time. Though the church’s roots said to belong to the Romanesque and Gothic period, but the interior of the church has a striking resemblance with the neo-classical period. You can see its influence in the columns that has palm-like structure and cream colored long benches with back. History says, the church played a significant role in the non-violent movement that finally let to the downfall of East German government. Still the church holds peace prayers in the hope of bringing downfall to the injustice that might be plaguing the country.

Visit the church to have a look into the significant architectural work existing in the churches of Leipzig.

St. Nicholas Church, Leipzig Reviews

Google+
  • Without doubt, the most spectacular Classicist Church in Germany. The creative use of non-standard "double Corinthian" capitals and the retention of the late medieval net vaulting gives the church an almost baroque flair. Instead of more standard neo-classical heterodoxy emerging from Italy and France, the church represents a unique mixture of different periods. The exterior west-work betrays the romanesque foundations, the vaulting represents the high-point of the German Hall-church, and in the capitals, choir and Palladian windows a syncretic German classicism.

  • Wonderful church in pink and pistachio green.

  • The focal point of the Peaceful Revolution of 1989, the St Nicholas Church is one of the most important places to visit when in Leipzig. Recommended.

  • One of the most interesting and important sights in Leipzig. Although the church is medieval it has great architectural features from other periods.

  • Magnificent Place of Worship.. Glory be to God. Splendid display of God's hands at work. Love it
