Thrill To The Dance Of Death

Dedicated to the patron saint of sailors and fishermen, St Nicholas' is no longer in use as a church.

The building dates from early medieval times, with major 14th century additions and it's now a museum dedicated to ecclesiastical art.

Nearly destroyed in the Second World War, the restored church became a museum, and one very notable exhibit now is the Dance of Death by Bernt Notke, a chilling reminder of mortality.

The church still has a very medieval feel and a spiritual atmosphere, and the concerts held there are famous.
