I first visited this church as a schoolboy when the city was still divided and try to re-visit each time we return to Berlin. The whole reverence and design of the modern side is quite overwhelming, an oasis of peace and tranquillity amid the bustling...More

This displayed showed me how it looked when it was bombed. The new church next to it beyond words. The inside is so scared, you don't even feel like talking in there. Our group was able to walk between the glass walls!

The remnants of the destroyed church, although small, are worth a visit. Information boards tell the story of the church from its inception in 1885 to its destruction during WW2. There are tangible links to Volgograd and Coventry Cathedral which add post war interest. The...More

Very interesting new church with stained glass walls. Nice acoustics. History overview in old ruins in the middle. Interesting how it's going to look when the new tower-building is ready.

If you are in the area, sure take a few minutes to check it out, just don't make it the focus of your visit to the area.

We saw this at night and it made a profound impression never to be forgotten. Some nearby buildings are also beautiful in the dark. A must see.

I found this whole place just fascinating. They have a small series of boards with pictures showcasing the church history and seeing that while standing there gave me a real sense of the destruction that impacted the city in a way that just reading or...More

A church bombed during the WW II, they did not reconstruct it only to show the remains. Instead, a new church is being constructed besides it and that looks more like a corporate office than a church. This is now more of a memorial than...More

Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through
the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which
lends its name to this well-heeled neighborhood. 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
