Service Description

The Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church is a monument in Berlin-Charlottenburg. It was built by Franz Schwechten in the neo-Romanesque style on behalf of Kaiser Wilhelm II in memory of his grandfather Kaiser Wilhelm I in the years 1891–1895. At 113 meters, its church tower was the highest in the city at the time. In1943 the church was badly damaged during a bombing raid. Afterwards, the spire of the original church looked like a “hollow tooth, a nickname given by the Berliners. After a dispute over the reconstruction, an agreement followed to demolish the nave, preserve the 71 meter high tower ruin as a memorial against the war, and build a new four-part ensemble. This was built by Egon Eiermann in the modern style between 1959 and 1963 and consists of the nave, the church tower, the chapel and the foyer. The Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church is one of the most popular sights in the German capital and a memorial against war and destruction. An information center hall has been located in the tower ruin since 1987. Ask questions or listen in!
