Neue Wache - New Guardhouse, Berlin: 23 reviews and 36 photos
The Neue Wache was the first building designed by Karl Freidrich Schinkel for King Friedrich Wilhelm III of Prussia, for use as a royal guard house for the nearby Palace of the Crown Prince. Built between 1816 and 1818 it is considered to be one of the finest examples of Neo-Classical architecture in Berlin. With the fall of the German monarchy at the end of WW1 the guard house was no longer required. A new use was found and from 1931 it became a war memorial though it has under gone a number of changes over the years. It was rededicated in 1993 as the ?Central Memorial of the Federal Republic of Germany for the Victims of War and Tyranny.?
