After the 2nd WW bombing not much remained of this building but it has be carefully stitched together to show both the devastation and the artwork remaining - visit the new cathedral next door at the same time - the blue stained glass and hanging artifacts and the The Stalingrad Madonna are all on display

As well as the damage from various air sorties by the British airforce in WW2 for all to see, there is also a number of candles and messages around the back where the horrors of the Christmas terror attack took place.

It was so moving to visit this tower and to see the objects which were saved. There was a decorative ceiling mosaic and other objects recovered from the site. The adjoining church is very modern but also worth a visit

It is a very symbolic place to go in the old west Berlin that remain damaged since the war and still is like this. The part of the museum on the interior totally worth it

I hadn't planned on seeing this but I had some time to kill waiting for my train so thought why not. It's very small inside (you only need 15 minutes max) I spent longer sat on the steps outside watching the world go by (it's a really good place to do this) The history of the church, in particular its...

I have visited this amazing church on a previous visit to Berlin but felt that I wanted to visit it again to pay respect to those who died at Christmas. There was a large memorial of candles and flowers on its steps and many people were congregated there. The church's history is well known and it stands as a constant... More

The new church that replaced the old, which is still largely in ruins, looks very bleak and unprepossessing from the outside, but is plain and beautiful inside and somehow making the outside look beautiful would have missed the point. Well worth a visit.

We returned to this site twice as it was very moving and interesting. The first time the sun was going down and light was fading. The second was mid-afternoon. The Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church is a protestant church and appears quite small despite its imposing broken bell tower steeple. It was brutally bombed out during British air raids in 1943... More

The tower is all that's left of the church after the war & is still beautifully well preserved. It's free to go into which is a plus. It's really unbelievable how big it was. The mosaic tile ceilings are incredible & there are relics and a photo wall showing the church in its original glory, after it was bombed and... More

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.
