Friedrichswerder Church

Friedrichswerdersche Kirche in Berlin-Mitte

The Friedrichswerder Church is a masterpiece of neo-Gothic architecture and houses a collection of 19th century sculptures in the nave.

The Friedrichswerder Church (1830), Karl Friedrich Shinkel’s neo-gothic masterpiece lays only a short walk away from the Museum Island area on the Werdeschermarkt immediately recognisable by its twin square towers. It is best known because of its permanent exhibition on the life and works of Karl Friedrich Schinkel, Prussia’s renowned architect and his contemporaries Johann Gottfried Schadow and Christian Daniel Rauch.

The collection of 19th century sculpture is exhibited in the nave. Highlights include the original model for the sculpture of the princesses Louise and Friedericke and portraits from the times of Goethe from Christian Daniel Rauch and contemporaries. An exhibition on the top floor shows Schinkel’s own work and life.
