The Kaiser William Memorial Church, or the Gedächtniskirche, is one of the most historic and striking monuments in Berlin. The towering cathedral overlooks the Breitscheidplatz, and is within walking distance of numerous attractions. Their location alone makes hotels near Gedächtniskirche worthwhile; the church stands at the epicenter of historic West Berlin. The modern commercial center, from the Ku’damm to the Europa Center, will be at your fingertips while staying near the Gedächtniskirche. Hotels on the Brietscheidplatz are gateways to the entire city—and, most importantly, they make exploring the world-famous Gedächtniskirche easy. The church’s Neo-Romanesque façade, renovated interior, dual bell towers and intricate mosaics are only a few of the features within minutes of these Berlin hotels. Gedächtniskirche and its vicinity are waiting to welcome you to this fascinating city, so begin planning your next getaway.

The Gedächtniskirche was named for Kaiser William II, who personally commissioned the construction of the grand cathedral. The first stones of the foundation were laid on the Kaiser’s birthday, and every inch was created according to his master plan. The Neo-Romanesque design, however, was the brainchild of architect, Franz Schwechten. The piece de resistance of the completed church was 2,740 square meters of beautiful wall mosaics. One of its mosaics, of the Archangel Michael fighting the infamous dragon, remains preserved today. It and other artifacts are only minutes from the many hotels near Gedächtniskirche. Hotels in the area will place you up close and personal with one of Berlin’s most beautiful landmarks. It and other structures tell an amazing story of the long and tumultuous history of Berlin. Hotels, Gedächtniskirche-adjacent and others, are waiting for you near the world-famous Breitscheidplatz.

What makes Berlin’s Gedächtniskirche so interesting is its unique combination of old and new elements. Even more interesting is that this fusion was not intentional; instead, it was the direct result of the church being severely damaged by an historic air raid in 1943. While the Gedächtniskirche was originally constructed in the 1890’s, much of what you see today only dates back to 1959. The current foyer, belfry and chapel were built then. Meanwhile, the original (albeit destroyed) spire of the Gedächtniskirche proudly remains right next to the contemporary belfry; its ground floor is now home to a World War II memorial hall. Artifacts of particular interest within the memorial hall include the previously mentioned mosaic, along with others depicting influential thinkers and monarchs of medieval Germany. The adjacent vault contains a priceless collection of Hohenzollern princes, and bas-relief sculptures depict stories from the Bible. Religious imagery, including a statue of Christ himself, can be seen throughout. This collection of centuries-old works of art contrasts against the church’s modern additions, creating a unique attraction. All first-time visitors to Berlin should visit the Gedächtniskirche. Hotels near Gedächtniskirche make it easy to do just that. Here at Eurobookings, we offer the best available Berlin hotels.
