Berlin

What I enjoy about Berlin is the mixture of old with the new. One of my absolute favorite sites is the Kaiser-Wilhelm Gedächtnis Kirche. It was a Neo-Romanesque church that was destroyed by bombing in 1943, and now all that is left is its front tower. The inside of the memorial hall under the tower is exquisitely covered in ceiling mosaics and marble reliefs. In 1961 a new octagonal tower was built; I find that upon first glance the two churches look like they have nothing to do with one another, yet somehow they still compliment each other with their stark architectural contrasts.
