Places of Interest in Saxony

St. Nicholas' Church in Leipzig
St. Nicholas' Church - one of the oldest churches in Leipzig - has been closely linked to the history of the town and the fate of its citizens. The peaceful protests that brought down the Berlin Wall began with regular evenings of prayers at St. Nicholas' Church in Leipzig. "Nikolaikirche - open to all" was the intention of serving as a spiritual space open for everyone. Christians and non-Christians, people who wanted to leave the country and those who were just curious, initiated the 1989 revolution's non-violent changes in German history here at St. Nicholas' Church under the peaceful Monday prayers of pastor Christian Fuehrer.
