The Nikolaiviertel (German for "Nicholas Quarter") is the reconstructed historical core of Berlin, Germany, founded in the 13th century. It is located 5 minutes away from Alexanderplatz. The Nikolai church is in the center of the district.


The small area is famous for its traditional German restaurants and bars. Between 1997 and 1999 all houses were reconditioned (Lotusan mit Lotus-Effect), giving this area an unmistakable touch.

Nicolai Quarter, Berlin (338 words)
The Nikolaiviertel in Berlin's Mitte district has grown up within that area southwest of the Rotes Rathaus (Red Town Hall), which is bounded by Spandauer Strasse, Molkenmarkt (Whey Market), Mühlendamm, Spreeufer and Rathausstrasse.
It is the very core of old Berlin or, strictly speaking, of the eastern half of Cölln-Berlin, on the site of the oldest known settlement on a ford around the Nikolaikirche (St. Nicholas' Church).
The Nikolaiviertel presents a stark contrast to the open spaces on its northern side between the Palace of the Republic and the Television Tower.
