If you want to learn more about nonviolent resistance and prayerful revolution, this is the place to go. Unlike many churches in Europe, this congregation is still active and has peacefully resisted and prayed through major conflicts in Germany and the world. This church is known for praying the Berlin Wall down and is also a church that Bach played at from time to time and where Martin Luther also preached. Walk inside, and you will leave with hope of world peace.

The church is beautiful in it's own right, but history of candlelight prayers that impacted overthrow of Eastern German regime is reason to visit.

Lot of tourists makes it a touristic attraction, however it is really worth of visit. The church is nice, pity we couldn't hear the chorals.

A great venue for the Bach festival in June 2014. Bring your camera...quite impressive. Great for choral and instrument concerts. Near the main shopping areas of the city

We were there for the Bach Festival and acoustics were good. Seats were not very comfortable but standard church pews. Church is fairly spartan but attractive.
