Wismar (dpa/mv) - After several months of restoration work, the crowning of the tower of St. Nikolai Church in Wismar will be placed back on the ridge next Wednesday (February 22). This concludes the work on the church tower, as the city of Wismar announced on Wednesday.
In the past four years there has been extensive renovation work on and in the St. Nikolai Church. In February 2022, repair work on the church tower began. Among other things, the historic masonry of the tower gables was restored and the copper roof renewed. According to the city, a particular highlight was the acceptance of the crowning of the tower on July 6, 2022.
This adorns the ridge of the tower as a ridge turret. In the two large spheres were time capsules with documents, which are now kept in the archives of the Hanseatic city. The documents include a certificate with information about the last renovation of the church tower after the Second World War.
