The overarching message is reconciliation, from the Coventry Cross, to the Russian Orthodox Madonna carving which was from a German soldier's sketch found after one of the battles in Russia. Wars are the scars of failure.

Do not miss the opportunity to view this church. This church is a stark reminder of what the entire city was probably like in 1945.

Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through
the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which
lends its name to this well-heeled neighbourhood.
Here you'll find some of the oldest homes in the city:
upper-class apartment buildings with ornate facades
and marble-floored foyers line the cobblestone
streets. Stroll by sophisticated restaurants, through
little parks, or around Lake Lietzensee. Window shop
