Franziskaner Klosterkirche was a once beautiful church and after repeated allied air raids the church was left as a pile of ruins and in my eyes is still just as beautiful. The beautiful and well kept gardens and peaceful surroundings make it a wonderful place...More

This is all that's left of this once gorgeous church. The ruins of the church make the atmosphere while visiting them quite eerie. Nonetheless, even the red brick ruins are beautiful.

The church was badly damaged during WW 2, and the East German government had neither the resources nor the will to restore it. The site is well kept, and there are two sculptures. A place for reflection.

Not much to see, as it is gated off. Worth a look if you are walking past, but no need to make a special visit.

We saw this bombed out church from the top of the TV tower. It's very moving to see what was left after world war 2. There was an artist installation so we couldn't walk around but it was still good to visit. Great to get...More

Right by the Klosserstrasse UBahn station... worth making a visit to. Largely distroyed during WW2, the ruins have been stablized and retained in a quiet garden. Gothic ruins originally built in 13th and 14th centuries.

This is a really interesting ruin of a church set in lovely grounds and is most certainly well worth checking out. Just off the beautiful Nikolaiviertal District as you exit the Ubahn station Kloster Straße the former church founded in 1250 is directed in front...More

Interesting ruined church that's worth a look if you like that kind of thing. Not much to do, but good to contemplate what's happened here in the past.

On the corner of Grunerstrasse and Littenstrasse are the scant remains of this Franciscan Monastery from 1250. It is a very peaceful place, set in a small park less than five minutes walk from Aleksanderplatz. The church was destroyed during WW2 and a few photographs...More

The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights
like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum
Island. The central location makes this one of the
city's most expensive places to live. It is here the
oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence
of some significant transformations, as well. The
gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets
between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given
