Permanent Exhibition

Berlin’s Middle

Eight hundred years of history and culture

Permanent exhibition in the Museum Nikolaikirche about the history of the medieval building and the city.

The St. Nicholas' Church (Nikolaikirche) uses a vivid presentation of the historical interior features to illustrate the former functions of the building. Various thematic sections focus on different aspects of the building's content:

  • Searching for traces: the early history of the city of Berlin
  • From natural stone to bricks: the story of how the Nikolaikirche was built
  • Excursions: the Nikolaiviertel yesterday and today
  • World-famous: church songs from St Nikolai
  • A changing liturgy: religious artworks and liturgical equipment
  • Burial culture in the church interior: the Berliners’ “Pantheon”
  • Lost and rediscovered: the treasure of coins in the steeple ball 

An audio guide in six languages and interactive media stations in four languages reveal the monument and convey in-depth exhibition content. Various participatory exhibition elements, learning and experience sites, and inclusive activities are provided. For example, visitors' senses are activated by an audio-commentated tour that presents tactile exhibits.
