Photographer's Note

The Kaiser-Wilhelm-Gedächtniskirche is one of Berlin's famous landmarks.

The church is located at the Breitscheidplatz, with the Ku'damm shopping street and Europa Center near by.

The church was built between 1891 and 1895 by Kaiser Wilhelm II, the church was a symbol of Prussian
unity.It was designed Franz Schwechten.

After allied bombing in November 1943, only the broken west tower of the church was still standing.
In 1961 a new, octagonal church designed by Egon Eiermann was built alongside the existing tower and a
freestanding hexagonal bell tower was constructed. The new church is constructed of reinforced concrete and blue-colored glass bricks.
