This pretty church is located near the red town hall building and not too far from Alexanderplatz. It is in quite good condition as it was extensively reconstructed after the war. Worth a quick look when you're in the area, but probably not worth a...More

The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights
like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum
