Much of the church is gone, but what remains is awesome. It must have been amazing pre-WWII. We caught a reasonably priced concert (classical music, various classics) in the hall next to it. Very much a living monument.

I really enjoyed visiting this memorial to peace. I love how Berlin has kept the shockingly damaged church as a memorial to the war. It’s beautiful inside despite the horrible state it’s in after the bombing. They emphasise that it’s a place to reflect on...More

This bombed church and it's tower damaged in WWII has been left as a reminder of the suffering of this city. Next door a new modern church has been built. Not nearly as impressive or with a story.

The remnants of this church are a poignant reminder of the destructive nature of war. It really should be a must see for anyone visiting Berlin. The museum covering the history of the church is extremely interesting.

We visit the church on the day that they have a festival celebration next to it. It was a lot of food stall and we tried so many different local food in Berlin. What a day!

This church was badly damaged by bombs during World War II. The structure would have been truly magnificent before the bombing. There are plenty of artefacts of the original church, and the preservation efforts have been outstanding. The artwork is simply superb. Thanks for your...More

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

Yes, this is it. It is now being restored, but you can go in to parts of it, and you can also attend services there.
