St. Nicholas’ Church (“Nikolaikirche”) was completed in the second half of the 15th century and has always been regarded as a symbol of the freedom and prosperity of the citizens of this Hanseatic city. During the last days of the war, the church was heavily damaged, and reconstruction has been ongoing since 1993. The reconstruction of the Nikolaikirche as “Ikareum” is a noteworthy building project of the Hanseatic city of Anklam. It is intended to turn the former baptistery of Otto Lilienthal into a visitor centre where the idea of human flight can be experienced.
