Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church, Berlin

4.5
#4 of 193 in Museums in Berlin
Originally opened in 1895, Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church today stands as a memorial to the destruction of World War II. This historic chapel was damaged--then almost completely eliminated--by bombings in 1943 and 1945. The remaining Romanesque architecture is in the steeple, which no longer has a pointed roof. The ground floor's memorial hall honors war victims. The people of Berlin preserved the ruins within the monument to represent the rebirth and resilience of postwar Berlin.

  • It is sad how human being has utilized religion to twist things. The church is a piece of art. Despite that so little is left of it, you can realize how much craftsmanship was.put into it. The mosaic ceiling is outstanding.
  • A true beauty to see in person. Just gorgeous. People in & around the building were greatly respectful. So glad we were able to visit it in 2017! The church in ruins is just as gorgeous as the one built in memorial. The history is so rich, wonderful educational moment for our young daughter. Ontario, Canada Visited April 2017
