St. Matthew Church architectural features
Albert Speer's attempts to have it torn down in the early 1930s to make way for an area of the Germania project for the Berlin as capital of the Reich failed. When the whole district was destroyed at the end of the Second World War the Matthäuskirche was still standing. The Church was reconstructed in 1960 with a plain modern interior and left standing in the same isolated way it has ever since.
The Church is known for its Christmas concert programme and exhibitions.
