Map
Breitscheidplatz, Berlin, 10789, Germany

Part church and part memorial, the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church serves as a reminder of the destructiveness of war and the human will to survive. The historic church was constructed between 1891 and 1895 to honor Kaiser Wilhelm I, and the original building was completely destroyed by World War II bombing raids in 1943 and 1945. Between 1959 and 1961, a new church was constructed using the ruins of the original building. The new church has unique architectural elements, including honeycomb-patterned walls and mosaics depicting the kaiser. The vestibule of the church serves as a memorial hall.
