Neat ruins from WW2 bomb coupled with rebuilt church ⛪ beside. Cool they left the bombed sanctuary as memory. Worth a look from outside. Go in if you like but not most amazing. As Kirk Cameron once said: “I always go in”

I visited the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church during my visit to Berlin in August 2018. You enter the Hall of Remembrance and you also can see a Jesus Christ statue. The visit does not take very long. You can take photos of the church afterwards.

They kept this as it was after the bombs fell on it but have now built a great place right next to it and are building another tower. The area is nice too with a little square around it so well worth a visit.

If you spend any time on the Kurfürstendamm you are likely to see and hear this beautiful church which is a reminder of the destruction that occurred during WWII. It’s worth googling images of it to see what it looked like before it was bombed.

A new octagonal church with stained-glass bricks is on one side of the war-torn church if William II and a new octagonal 80 bell tower is being erected on the other side. The co-existance of the remains of the once 100+m original spire and the...More

A stark reminder of the destruction during WW2, but also an impressive preservation of what was left.

Echoes of Coventry Cathedral. The preserved bomb damaged church bears eloquent testimony to the madness and destructiveness of war. Very powerful reminder of where such madness can lead.

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
