This was my favorite spot in Berlin with its beautiful statues in the most solemn setting. Sadly, the fools working on a parking garage for ill conceived luxury apartments nearby damaged the foundation of this building in 2012 and nobody knows when it will be open to the public again, if ever. When it does finally reopen there's a good... More

We have visited so many of the historical churches in Europe and this was one of the best. Church was bombed out in world war II and what was left was preserved and a new church built on site. Fascinating.

Unfortunately the outside was covered in scaffolding while we visited - I really wanted to see it in its bombed state but the insides are small if you are in the area make sure you visit.

Most Berlin visitors are not even aware it exists. Beautiful balanced Karl Friedrich Schinkel architecture, restored by DDR craftsmen after WWII to the highest standards, housing one of the most gracious collections of classicist sculpture and full-size gypsum models (like the two Prussian princesses Luise & Friederike by Johann Gottfried Schadow). It even charges no entrance fee. It's quiet. It's... More

The Friedrichswerdersche Kirche was a church designed by Karl Friedrich Schinkel in 1830. Today the building is no longer a church but is the Schinkel Museum, which shows 19th century sculpture. Karl Friedrich Schinkel lived between 1781 and 1841. He was a very prominent Prussian architect and painter and much admired. Inside the church are several important sculptures. The sculpture...

Staying in Mitte

Neighbourhood Profile
The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighbourhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
