Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church
25 Oct 2013 | From Wilhelm of Germany
The Protestant Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church is located in Berlin on the Kurfürstendamm in the centre of the Breitscheidplatz.
The original church on the site was built in the 1890s. It was badly damaged in a bombing raid in 1943. The present building, which consists of a church with an attached foyer and a separate belfry with an attached chapel, was built between 1959 and 1963. The damaged spire of the old church has been retained and its ground floor has been made into a memorial hall.
This church, destroyed in the Second World War, is a famous landmark in Berlin. Wilhelm shared that the ruins stand as a monument against war.
