Never having seen a bombed out building, this is quite a sight. A good reminder of all the horror of the war.

Was one of the sights that needs seeing in Berlin. A thoughtful exhibition inside the church shows its place throughout modern history. With the pock marks of war evident its very thought provoking. And once you’re done there it’s smack bang in the middle of...More

Come on Tripadvisor, add another category to the "Overall Rating" selection - Historical Sites. I arrived at the Zoological Gardens from TXL and the Kaiser Wilhelm Church dominates the area around. It is an impressive sight and one that reminds us of the madness that...More

Glad this was preserved and has a link to Coventry Cathedral it is one of very few building left in the centre of Berlin after the allied bombing and shelling. The crucifix is made of nails from Coventry

I have seen the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church many times and it is always a powerful sight to see. The church remains were kept in their bombed-out state after the second world war, to make sure we, i.e., all humans, do not forget the past....More

The original Kaiser Wilhelm Church was most Y Dey stroked in the bombing of Berlin. Its remains still stand as a memorial to the waste of war. It is haunting. The new Church next door, is striking but sterile.

This is a lovely building even though ti's only partially there. History is amazing and you do feel a little emotional after walking around the outside. Lovely memorial.

The interior of the remaining section of the church is fantastic and make you realise what was destroyed.

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
