Berlin found in Germany

Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church is a landmark in the city centre. The church complex on the Breitscheidplatz is close to the Kurfürstendamm and the ruins consist of the original building and a two-part construction of the church in 1961. The neo-Romanesque Kaiser Wilhelm Church was built between 1891 and 1895. The former Kaiser Wilhelm II wanted to make the church a religious memorial in honor to his grandfather, William I. It was a romantic many towered building building, and the tower at about 113 meters, was the highest in the city at that time. The interior was decorated with murals and mosaics and exceptionally gorgeous. During a bombing raid in the Second World War, the church was severely damaged in 1943, and only the ruined tower remained. In the postwar years the church has been the symbol of the monument against war and destruction.
