An important part of Berlin's history of the "Death Strip", the original church built in 1894 was blown up by East Germany during the Berlin wall segregation era. The new church was built in 2000, and continues to be remind visitor's of the bloody history along Bernauer Strasse. During our visit, I felt a sense of calm and goosebumps the moment I walked into the chapel. Reading the history and touching the walls - built with remnants of the old church ruins - it was hard to imagine this beautiful city was once torn into two worlds. You should definitely visit if you are in Berlin.
It was a pretty fun place to visit. It might not be too big, but I just loved how powerful it's photos and amazing architecture. It was a little far from the city center, which was mildly annoying.

Beautiful memorial. Enjoyed a service with the friendly congregation Sunday morning at 10am.
Go to this memorial to this church, which was demolished in order to secure the killing field which bordered the wall on the DDR side of the wall.
