St. Nikolai's Church

Heilbronn / Heilbronn Sights / St. Nikolai's Church


St. Nikolai's Church


 A small church with an eventful history.


A plain hall building with early Gothic features dating back to the 14th century. However, the main entrance, which is adorned with two striking sculptures of saints, deserves quite some attention. The small church has a rather eventful past.
In 1524, the first protestant sermons were held here and during the Thirty Year's War it was used as an armoury, whereas it later served as a military hospital and wood warehouse.
In 1848 it was used both as a gymnasium and as a venue for demonstrations.
It was re-consecrated in 1851, and in 1901 it became an independent parish church. The church was restored in 1950/51. In the interior you may find a bronze cross by Gerhard Marcks.
