The late-Gothic Church of St Nicholas (1230) is Berlin’s oldest surviving building and is now a museum documenting the architecture and history of the church. Grab the free audioguide for the scoop on the octagonal baptismal font and the triumphal cross, or to find out why the building is nicknamed the ‘pantheon of prominent Berliners’. Getting buried here cost a noble 80 thalers and an ‘old person’ 50 thalers.

There's an organ concert on Fridays at 5pm (€3/2). Head up to the gallery for close-ups of the organ, a sweeping view of the interior and a chance to listen to recorded church hymns. Admission is free on the first Wednesday of every month.
