When seeing the church, my first thought was that its construction was not finished. It took me a while to realize it was damaged by WWII bombings. Stunning.
This church is so beautiful and so unique. We went in on a beautiful sunny day and the light through the stained glass was stunning. I love that in the original section of the church you can clearly see the damage and the repairs to the ceiling. I also really enjoyed seeing all the pictures and reading about the original... More
This place is just a short walk from the Berlin Zoo and it is free to visit. I went there in November 2014 and unfortunately, the old church was closed for maintenance, so I could only enter the new one. No need to say that this church stands out from others with its modern architecture and interior. Even though it... More
While it is disappointing to have been able to see the original while it is being worked on, I was greatly impressed by the modern version. The octagonal colored glass is wonderful either in strong sunlight or after dark. I've never seen Chartes Cathedral which serves as its inspiration, but it reminded me of the interior of some mosques, using... More
Was a little disappointed as we really wanted to see the outside of this church, however it fully boarded up with scaffolding as there is work in progress to restore it. I only wished we had known as it was 30 mins on the train from our hotel to here. You can still get inside but we really wanted to... More
I have visited the site several times over the last 40 years. In its present condition, it was the least satisfying time of all. I suspect that will change when the work is done. The new church, inspired by the windows of the Chartres Cathedral, is sterile and modern. The blue light of the interior lends to the sadness of... More
I visited the Church with my wife who last visited it forty years ago. It's a short walk from the Zoological Gardens S-Bahn station. As we approached the church my wife commented upon it no looking the same as she remembered as there seemed to be a building in front of it. It all became clear as we reached the... More
Located in the heart of Berlin, this beautiful church is a monument to the devastation of war. Just one of many humbling sites to visit in this beautiful city.
The outside of the remaining tower was almost completely hidden under scaffolding, but inside is amazing. It must have been a beautiful church if this remaining part is any indication. The new church looks pretty bleh from outside but WOW inside bathed in blues from the stained glass squares.
I visited this building but was outnumbered by Germans. The church has a nail cross from Coventry and the modern part has stunning blue glass windows. The old part has beautiful ceilings depicting the History of Prussia.
