Gedächtniskirche

Fifteen years ago, I also posted some photos of the Kaiser-Wilhelm-Gedächtniskirche (Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church), located on the Kurfürstendamm in Berlin and here’s a more recent one. The church was built by Kaiser Wilhelm II in the 1890s in commemoration of his grandfather Kaiser Wilhelm I. The church was heavily damaged in 1943. The spire of the original church has been retained with a memorial hall on the ground floor, while a modern chapel and a separate belfry were added between 1959 and 1963. The original spire has been nicknamed ‘der hohle Zahn’ (The Hollow Tooth), whereas the new church are known as the ‘Lippenstift und Puderdose’ (the lipstick and the powder box). I added a photo of the interior of the chapel, known for its blue glass, to the WS (https://i1.trekearth.com/photos/12257/1229ws._gedaechtniskirche.jpg).

The two modern towers in the left hand side are Upper West (completed in 2016, 119 metres) and Zoofenster (completed in 2012, 118 metres).
