Alter Markt · interesting places nearby
The main portal of the soaring Nikolaikirche is reached via an entrance off the Alter Markt. This masterpiece of medieval architecture dates to 1270 and is modelled on Lübeck's Marienkirche. Its interior is redolent with colour and is filled with art treasures. The main altar (1708), designed by the baroque master Andreas Schlüter, shows the eye of God flanked by cherubs and capped by a depiction of the Last Supper.
Also worth a closer look are the high altar (1470), 6.7m wide and 4.2m tall, showing Jesus' entire life, and, behind the altar, a 1394-built (but no longer operational) astronomical clock .
