Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church is in my opinion one of the most powerful war memorials in the world and the fact it's in one of the most commercial districts of Berlin does not diminish it's absolutely powerful message of the futility and sheer destructfulnes of...More

At Kurfurstendamn in the center of the Breitscheidplatz is located the Protestant Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church. The original church was built in the 1890s, but was nearly total destroyed during WWII. The people of Berlin choose not to rebuild it but leave it as a...More

The scale of the church, the scale of the tragedy, must be seen in person to be appreciated. A must see in Berlin.

The remaining stone work & friezes were bright, colorful and impressive but I found it hard to appreciate the sentiment of the church due to it's surroundings. However, it is an important monument & reminder to all of the futility of war.

Look at the church for a minute and you can image the bonging of the second world war. Amazing and suggestive.

Why keep it non renovated... because of having a reminder of atrocities of war. This is a place where you can think, while also shop or enjoy urban mullti-cultural feeling all around. A must-see in Berlin. Remember a spare a few thoughts for the victims...More

The face of West Berlin and a poignant reminder of the horrors visited on Berlin and Europe 70 years ago. The new church buildings are a stark contrast on the outside to the old church but beautiful inside. Our visit coincided with a series of...More

Beautiful memorial church with pictures and historical text. The church is a juxtaposition of both old and new architecture. Here's a chance to understand a slice of history during WWII. The mosaics in the vaulted ceiling are beautiful and still vibrant.

I was here in 1970. I wanted to see it again. The Kaiser Wilhelm Church must have been absolutely magnificent! There is only a tiny portion of it left, but there are some exhibits that include black and white photos of it pre-war destruction. The...More

This is an interesting place because they have kept the outside the same as when it was bombed, though inside its fairly modern (which was somewhat disappointing as one wanted to see how it looked earlier). Worth a visit.

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
