Kaiser Wilhelm Gedächtnis Kirche

This is definitely going to be the last post about the Berlin trip.  There is the ruin of a large gothic church in the centre of what was formerly West Berlin, the church was destroyed in an air raid in 1943.  Beside it is a new hexagonal building made of concrete lattice work so that from the outside during the day it looks, frankly, rather ugly.  Inside it is a revelation, the whole church is made of incredibly deep strong coloured glass and is both delicate and beautiful.  Here are pictures of bothe the old and the new:
