This is an odd looking church as it was bombed heavily in the second world war. It was later reconstructed with some of the damage remaining as a tribute to the victims of war. It is near the Berlin Zoo.

Very interesting visit of the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial church, showing how the old church was destroyed during WWII. Nevertheless I much prefer the new church with its blue stained-glass windows

We enjoyed our visit to the Weihnachtsmarkt surrounding the church and extending to the Europa Center. It was well done with many booths. Safety barriers had been installed to prevent a repeat of the 2016 attack.

This is a Cross of Nails church and is a great reminder of the horrors of war and the power of reconciliation. Thought provoking and moving. A good place for reflection and prayer.

This stunning remains of a bombarded church and the new one built next to it is a reminder for the old war but also the place of the recent terrorist attack to Berlin people.

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
