The church is iconic in its WWII destroyed form but the real gem is the charcoal drawing done on a piece of white linen by a German Doctor who was trapped at Stalingrad in 1942/43. It is of the madonna and child and titled 'light,...More

Kaiser Wilhelm was a church with a significant history before World War 11 but with the allied bombing of Berlin in 1944 the church was reduced to ruins which now stand as a reminder of the horrors of war. The remains of the buildings have...More

We passed this ruined church every day on the way to and from our hotel. It wasn’t until our last morning that we actually went in. Inside, it has glittering mosaic ceilings of the Hohenzollern dynasty, complete with cracks from wartime damage. The new church...More

Another free site. This Protestant church was bombed during the 1943 bombings, but has since been restored.

Well-presented history within the bombed-out church, and a beautiful spiritual space in the new part. An important witness for peace.

Worth a quick trip to see that destruction of WW2- one of the few places the Germans left untouched rather than repairing the damage- interesting to see. Nearby is Bikini Berlin, the Zoo and stroll down Kurfurstendamm.

Probably not worth a trip from across town, but it was near our hotel so we dropped in. This bombed-out church is connected to the Coventry Cathedral in England and another church in Russia as worldwide monuments to the destructiveness of war. The architecture of...More

I think it is one of the few buildings that managed to stand after the bombard of WWII. Impressive, no entrance, 10-15 minutes visit. Its suggested for a walk during light time.

Very impressive. Had a short free (make a donation at the end if you thought it was good enough - it was excellent) guided tour. With old and modern there is a strange mixture of beauty and ugly, what is ugly on the outside was...More

This is one of the top10 places you must visit in Berlin. Very moving and very beautiful. A small attraction but none the less very impressive.

Charlottenburg
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

I enjoyed a concert here but I only stumbled across it by mistake, as I was passing there were some posters up for a concert that evening. Sorry I can't be of more help
