This church was badly damaged by bombing during the war which resulted in the main body of the church being destroyed. No fee to get in----good display of photographs, showing the splendour of the building before it was damaged. Well worth a look.

Another familiar Berlin landmark, with its partially destroyed tower, which now houses the original neo-Romanesque mosaics in the Memorial Hall. These are worth seeing. There is also a crucifix made from nails found in the ashes of Coventry Cathedral (destroyed 3 years before this one, in 1940). The church didn't really have a very long life, only 48 years, from...

Just had to visit this place. Detroyed by the war and could have been rebuilt but they chose to turn it into a museum and a monument instead. Some lovely artwork inside and well worth a visit

You have to see both parts, the new and the old. The old has the most amazing mosaics in the ceiling. The new church has blue glass mosaics covering the walls - it is absolutely beautiful!

Others have said it already, but it is a powerful sight to see in what is now becoming a new shopping area. Not sure it's a must see but it is very interesting to see the mix of old and new in this area.

Although interesting and superbly restored , I personally found this yet another reminder of the damage done to Germany by the Nazis going to war . But on a brighter note the whole area around is lively and the shopping busy ,worth a look if in the area . Sadly it is also the area attacked by a terrorist at... More

We didn't actually plan to see this church, but I'm happy we got to see it after all. It's a beautiful church, or what's left of the church which was bombed in the war. Just next to this church is a more mordern beautiful church, both are free to visit and won't take up much time. If you're going to... More

This is a really beautiful Church and the fact that it was restored half-destroyed makes it a unique building. During night it is lid up magnificently. The new addition is also very nice. Do not miss it.

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighbourhood Profile
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 down Kurfürstendamm, the most renowned high-end shopping street in Berlin, where you can find all the big designer names. In the evening, visit one of the old theatres close by Zoo Station which were nightlife hot spots in the 1920s, or dine in one of the many international restaurants around Savignyplatz before heading to other parts of town for a night out.
