We were there for the Bach Festival and acoustics were good. Seats were not very comfortable but standard church pews. Church is fairly spartan but attractive.

The Nicolai Kirche is a welcoming, pretty church. I'm not religious, but I felt very welcomed here. It seemed like it was open to everyone by the services they had advertised. It's also a very important part of Leipzig and the former Eastern Germany's history, so you shouldn't miss it. Inside it's colour scheme is different to your standard church as it's all in pastel mint and white. It's definitely worth seeing. One of my favourite churches.

The inside of this church is beautiful with columns that look like palm trees. Be sure to pay attention to the church organ, which is one of the largest ones I have ever seen.

Learn about the history old and recent - how meetings in this beautiful church led to the silent revolution and ultimately the downfall of the Iron Curtain in the '80's. Walk inside and feel the peace and calm, but also the uplifting feeling that it gives you - this really does feel like a magical place.
