Although, its surrounded by modern commercial buildings (Kudamm is the main shopping street) this is a touching spot in Berlin and not only a broken and destroyed church.
It is an Evangelic Lutheran church that was built in 1868 by Wilhelm II (dedicated to his grandfather Kaiser Wilhelm) in neo-romanesque style.
The church is famous because it was destroyed of the bombing during WWII, and unlike other building in Berlin it was left unrestored so the people to remember the bad effect of war. Its tower used to be 113m high but after the bombing its only 64m.
Inside the church you can see some bright and colorful mosaics at the ceiling, usually they show bible or historical scenes.
The church is open mon-sat 10.00-16.00 and the entrance is free.
