Das Nikolaiviertel

Berlin´s Origins are in the Nikolai quarter. The Nikolaikirche at its centre is the oldest building of the town that is still standing, and also Berlin's first church.

The history of the town of Berlin, the first mention of which in an official document was made in 1237, started in the Eastern part of Berlin-Cölln, a double-town split by the river Spree. Founded at the crossing of land and water trading routes on both sides of the Spree, it was first connected by the Mühlendamm dam and later by a bridge.
