This synagogue is one of the few elements of Jewish history to remain in the suburb of Rosenthal and is used as a place of worship by the Beth Zion congregation. The synagogue was built in 1910 and can hold up to 500 people. The interior of the synagogue was destroyed during the Fascist pogroms of 1938 and was used as a warehouse during the war years. The socialist East German era saw the synagogue taken over by a cosmetic manufacturer. Returned to the Jewish community after reunification, there is an inscription in Hebrew above the entrance which reads "this is the door that the just will pass through".
Constructed in the 1800s by Berlin's most influential architect, Karl Friedrich Schinkel, all that remained after the 1940s of Elisabethkirche was the church's skeleton. Wind whistled through the window frames, plaster peeling off the brick walls. Since its destruction in World War II, nobody seemed too interested in restoring the neoclassical masterpiece, presumably due to lack of funds. However, in 2003, a restoration was completed on the façades of the east and west vestries, making for a more attractive set of ruins. The church also hosts art exhibits.
Segenskirche is a benediction evangelist church holding the regular services as well as events like baptisms, weddings and enchanting choral concerts. The church itself is a sight to see with its tall clock tower and beautiful masonry.
Opened in 1904, Rykestrasse synagogue in Berlin was built in a neo-Romanesque style by local architect Johann Hoeniger. This grand structure withstood the test of time and war and still retains much of its ornate interior. In recent years, the synagogue has witnessed a revival of sorts, establishing itself as one of the foremost centers of Jewish learning in central Europe. This unique attraction is popular among architecture and history enthusiasts. Regular tours conducted in both English and German allow a personal discovery of one of the city's most iconic religious sites.
Sophienkirche, completed in 1713, has stood as a landmark of Mitte Berlin for many years and is an important part of its parish. Though originally constructed without a spire, builders added one to the building about 20 years later. It has become an important example of baroque-style architecture, and is still a draw for many lovers of architecture. In addition to its historical significance, the church is now well known for its many choral groups and musical events.
With its impressive brick façade and lofty spire, the Immanuelkirche stands out among its neighbors in Prenzlauer Berg. Constructed near the end of the 19th century, this church has maintained its status as one of the major examples of neo-Romantic architecture, and is therefore a popular tourist destination. It also hosts a range of concerts and other events throughout the year, which are popular among visitors and locals alike.
The imposing structure, with its striking golden dome makes Neue Synagoge one of Berlin's most instantly recognizable landmarks. Designed by architect Eduard Knoblauch in 1859, the synagogue was the center of Jewish life in Berlin until the the night of 9th November 1938 (Kristallnacht), when it was attacked by Nazi storm-troopers. After an Allied air raid in 1943, the synagogue lay in ruins for around 40 years after the end of the war. It was then restored and reopened as a museum of Jewish culture on the fiftieth anniversary of Kristallnacht, in 1988.
In 1856 St. Johannes-Evangelist-Kirche was created in the municipalities Philippus Apostel and pc. Johannes Evangelist as separations of the Sophiengemeinde. In 1859 the church became a private initiative, a chapel and a parsonage building are on property that it stands today.
