Bombed during World War II, this protestant church has never been fully restored. Instead, a new structure has been built around it, based on the design of a modernist architect Egon Eiermann, which proudly showcases the damage the building has suffered from the bombs. Standing as a silent witness to the horrors of war, it has become one of the most popular sights in Berlin. Due to its appearance, locals have taken to calling it "The Hollow Tooth".
The most prominent part of the church is its spire. A memorial hall has been established on its ground floor with magnificent mosaics left over from the original church building still to be found on its ceilings.
