St. Elisabeth church, Berlin
Adam and Eve can't resist
St. Elisabeth church was built by Karl-Friedrich Schinkel (1781-1841) on behalf of the Prussian king Friedrich Wilhelm III. (1770-1840). During the Sevond WW the management of the church was dominated by people close to the Nazis. The building was heavily damaged during the bombing of Berlin 1945.
As a part of the Sophiengemeinde the church and the main building beside are hosting cultural events and include a Kindergarten nowadays. The 7th Berlin Biennale is using the church as a venue for its “Draftmen’s congress”. Artists are working there and coaching children exploring their talents as well.
