Tips

  • Carola K.

    The Heilandskirche in Sakrow was recently extensively restored. It stands right on the former border between East and West Berlin and was one of the locations for the film "Keinohrhasen".

    The church has a very exposed location at the port of Sacrow on the Havel. The architectural style is very unusual - Italian style with a free-standing campanile (bell tower) and is said to have been built according to drawings by Friedrich Wilhelm IV.
    The church is always closed on Mondays, so we couldn't go in today.
    Church services and concerts are also held in the church.

    Very nicely situated on the water, in the times of the GDR the church was almost dilapidated - because it was in no man's land that no one was allowed to enter. Fortunately, it would be rebuilt.

    We recommend. The church used to stand behind the wall and was neglected by the GDR, or it was not done to it. At the end of the GDR, the West gave money to maintain the property. After the fall of the wall, the church was restored very nicely. Very Romanesque. Nice for photos between the columns. The interior can be visited.

    The architecture alone is worth several visits. The first German antenna system for wireless telegraphy was built on the tower in 1897. Signals could be transmitted to the imperial sailor station "Kongsnaes" 1.6 kilometers away on the opposite bank of the Jungfernsee in Schwanenallee in Potsdam.

    To the south of the Brandenburg village of Sacrow, on the banks of the Havel, stands the Heilandskirche at the Port of Sacrow, which protrudes into the river on a promontory. The church, known for its location and style, called “Heilandskirche” for simplicity, was built in 1844 as a sacred building in Italian style with a free-standing campanile (bell tower) based on drawings designed by the “romantic on the throne” Friedrich Wilhelm IV. The "architect of the king" Ludwig Persius received the contract for the construction planning.
    The church is located around a hundred meters below the small Sacrow Castle and is part of its castle park, which the garden artist Peter Joseph Lenné also extensively redesigned in the 1840s.

    To the south of the Potsdam district of Sacrow is the Heilandskirche at the port of Sacrow on the Havel bank, also simply called "Heilandskirche" or "Sacrower Kirche". The church, which is exceptional due to its location and style, was built in 1844. Friedrich Wilhelm IV wanted a church in Italian style with a free-standing bell tower (campanile). It was built by his architect Ludwig Persius based on sketches by the king. It had been in the Berlin Wall area since 1961 and suffered considerable damage during this time. After the fall of the wall, it was restored in the 1990s. Embedded in the Sacrower Palace Park, it is part of the Potsdam Havel landscape, which extends from the Pfaueninsel to Werder and, with its castles and gardens, has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1990.

    During the Cold War, the area around the Heilandskirche was part of the restricted area of the Berlin Wall.
    The last service took place on Christmas Eve 1961. A few days later, the interior of the church was almost destroyed and partially spent. Only the apse painting survived. In the 1980s it had become an important memorial for the first German-German preservation of monuments in the border area.

    Great church. Great location and the view of the Glienicker Bridge. Once cordoned off and disfigured by the GDR border, it is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site: in 1844 the Sacrower Heilandskirche on the Havel river at the gates of Potsdam was inaugurated. Like an antique ship anchored on the riverbank, she is sometimes described poetically. But in 1961 the work of the Prussian master builder Ludwig Persius fell victim to politics. The German-German border ran across the church grounds. The fall of the Berlin Wall 30 years ago was also a liberation for the monument.

    A beautiful sight. In the immediate vicinity there is a boat dock from which lakes can be made.

    Cool place to chill overlooking the water!Completely independent of a possibly existing so-called basic religious attitude.
