St. Matthew's Church, Berlin: 7 reviews and 10 photos
This beautiful neo-Romanesque, evangelic church (1844 - 1846) was renovated recently and looked very pretty outside and very simple, modest inside. I liked the back side of the church most with large apse and two smaller apsidioles well seen from the Neu Nationalgalerie (New National Gallery). They remained me many churches/cathedrals in northern Italy.
There was info table outside the church when I found schedule of numerous organ concerts which took place there: click here
I went upstairs to the top of its tower to see panorama of Berlin with large city park of Tiergarten, new skyscrapers around Potsdamer Platz, Sony Center and old TV tower.
From my friend OlafS from Belgium:
Neo-Romanesque was more or less the official style for protestant churches in 19th century Germany, at least in the protestant parts of it, and was favoured by emperors Wilhelm I and II (see the Gedchtniskirche for instance). This was in reference to the early period of the First Empire, when churches were built in Romanesque style and the empire was still complete.
