Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church

The Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church (also known as the Memorial Church) is a world-renowned monument in Berlin. Severely damaged during the Second World War, much of the ruins of the 19th century neo-Romanesque church were demolished in the 1950s. A new church was rebuilt (1959-1961) by Egon Eiermann, keeping part of the ruins as a reminder.
