The memorial church

Sightseeing Memorial Church Berlin | guidable

The Gedächtniskirche, also known as the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church, is a well-known church in Berlin. It is located in the heart of the Charlottenburg district and was originally a Protestant church that was consecrated in 1907. During the Second World War, the church was severely damaged by bombing and remained in ruins to commemorate the destruction of the war. Over the years, there were discussions about whether the church should be rebuilt or preserved as a memorial. In the end, it was decided to keep part of the ruins and rebuild the rest of the church in the 1950s. Today, the memorial church is an important monument to the destruction of the war and a popular tourist destination, as well as an active church community.
