A very beautiful little church and the highlight, you can climb the tower, but be careful, only if you are good on foot, because it goes up over narrow wooden ladders, past the big bell (attention strikes on the half and full hour ? ‍??) At the top you will be rewarded with a great view over the whole island. Definitely do *****

Beautiful church that suits Den Burg. With next to a real graveyard.

Functionally designed building with no particular artistic or architectural value. Electrics mostly out of date. No or hardly any sockets and no public wifi available. Lamps do not meet modern energy saving standards. Ceiling significantly too high, so heating costs have to be immense. Not up-to-date!

Topography of Terror

The Topography of Terror (Topographie des Terrors) is an outdoor and indoor history museum. It is located on Niederkirchnerstrasse, formerly Prinz-Albrecht-Strasse, on the site of buildings which during the Nazi regime from 1933 to 1945 were the headquarters of the Gestapo and the SS, the principal instruments of repression during the Nazi era.

The buildings that housed the Gestapo and SS headquarters were largely destroyed by Allied bombing during early 1945 and the ruins demolished after the war. The boundary between the American and Soviet zones of occupation in Berlin ran along the Prinz-Albrecht-Strasse, so the street soon became a fortified boundary, and the Berlin Wall ran along the south side of the street, renamed Niederkirchnerstrasse, from 1961 to 1989. The wall here was never demolished.
