Nikolai Quarter (Nikolaiviertel): The birthplace of Berlin

In the centre of the ever-bustling Berlin, next to the impressive Rotes Rathaus and the iconic Berliner Fernsehturm (TV Tower), lies the unique and picturesque Nikolai Quarter or Nikolaiviertel in German. Although the district is the oldest residential area in the city, it was built in its current form after World War II. It is considered the birthplace of Berlin, so it has historical and emotional significance for the city and its citizens.
