Built from 1824 to 1830 according to plans by Karl Friedrich Schinkel, the church on Werdersche Markt is probably the most authentic building of its creator. With the church, Schinkel created a major work of German Gothic Revival.

The Friedrichswerder Church is a monument on Werderschen Markt in the Mitte district of Berlin. Built on behalf of the Prussian Crown Prince Friedrich Wilhelm in the years 1824–1831 by Karl Friedrich Schinkel in the neo-Gothic style, it was the first representative brick building since the Middle Ages to attract great attention.
After severe damage in the Second World War, the single-aisle, double-towered sacred building was reconstructed from 1982 to 1987. The altar, the pulpit and the colored glass windows inside are still reminiscent of the original use as a Protestant church.
It is currently home to sculptures from the 19th century from the collection of the National Gallery.

It's a shame that the surrounding buildings have not been adapted to the church at least a little

Actually, the Friedrichswerder Church is not a church at all, but a museum with great statues by various artists. Admission is free!

Unfortunately, this beautiful Schinkel monument was badly desecrated by the new buildings and its existence was even endangered.
