Friedrichswerder Church (Friedrichswerdersche Kirche), Berlin

3.4
The first Neo-Gothic church ever built in Berlin, Friedrichswerder Church (Friedrichswerdersche Kirche) holds a large collection of sculptures created by German artists in the 19th century. Designed by architect Karl Friedrich Schinkel, the commanding church serves as a gallery showing works of Daniel Rauch and Gottfried Schadow. The upper floor houses a permanent exhibit dedicated to the life and career of Schinkel, who not only designed buildings, but also furniture and stage sets. Bombed during World War II and subsequently repaired, the building remains an outstanding example of Schinkel's architectural achievement. Organ concerts are sometimes held in the evenings. Note that reconstruction in recent years has sometimes limited access to the site.

  • Close was built, and the newly restored Church was closed with sculptures and pictures of Schinkel's time, because the construction measures were directly next to it not as harmless as promised. A few will have luxury residences here, and everyone else have to do without this featured Church for this. When will she be open again?
