The battered shell of the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church stands as a poignant reminder of the destruction of war.
Destroyed by Allied bombers in 1943, the church remains in its shattered condition as a monument to peace.
The church vestibule is now a memorial hall, with mosaics, sculptures and information panels. Important displays include the original damaged Crucifix and the Cross of Nails, created from nails collected from the destroyed Coventry Cathedral in England.
Free 30 minute tours provide an overview of the history of the building, both as a Protestant church and anti-war memorial.
A new church surrounding the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church hosts evening music services and choral and organ recitals.
The broken steeple and its adjacent postmodern bell tower dominate the busy Kurfürstendamm intersection in Charlottenburg.
