Gedächtniskirche

Commonly called the Gedächtniskirche, but also known as the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church, this Protestant church in Berlin’s Charlottenburg area is a popular tourist spot. The Gedächtniskirche is the second structure built on this site, as most of the original building was destroyed during a bombing raid in 1943. Only the entrance hall and part of the spire of the old church remain, and both have been incorporated into the new structure, and was built between 1959 and 1963. Kaiser Wilhelm II built the original church in 1891, to commemorate his grandfather, Kaiser Wilhelm I.

  • Peruse the remnants of the destroyed Berlin church inside the Gedenkhalle, which documents the structure’s history and contains mosaics and other objects that survived the bombing.
  • Admire the modern walls of Berlin’s new Gedächtniskirche, which contain 21, 334 panes of mostly blue stained glass, designed by French artist Gabriel Loire and inspired by the stained glass in the Chartres Cathedral.
  • Contemplate the figure of Christ, with hands lifted in blessing suspended above the altar; worked in tombac and brass with a high copper content, this figure was created by Munich artist Karl Hemmeter.

Berlin has an extensive public transportation system, so reaching Gedächtniskirche, located near Breitscheidplatz in the Charlottenburg district, is quite easy. Visitors can reach the church through U-Bahn lines U2, U9 and U12 and S-Bahn lines S3, S5 and S7. Exit at the Zoologischer Garten stop. More than 12 bus lines also stop near the Gedächtniskirche. Many of the public transportation lines originate at Berlin’s Hauptbahnhof, which connects the city with many other major European cities through high-speed Intercity Express trains. Berlin currently has two international airports, and the new Brandenburg Airport is set to open in 2013.

Nice hotel to a good price.
This is a good hotel. Nice and clean rooms. The location is ok central but not right next to shopping and restaurants. It took some time in the reception. The staff woorked a little bit slow.
