Standing there on the banks of the lake, tranquil and dreamy as if belonging to a bygone time and place: the Heilandskirche (Church of Our Saviour) in Sacrow. Built in the Italian style with a free-standing campanile (bell tower) and situated directly at Jungfernsee Lake, the small church possesses a Mediterranean charm all of its own.
Actually, the church was situated in an unreal realm for a long time, because during the post-war period of the division of Germany, the Wall surrounding West Berlin ran straight through the church grounds, with the church itself stranded in no man’s land and left to deteriorate. When the Wall came down with the reunification of Germany, the church was restored to its former glory in the middle of the 90s. Services and weddings are also held in this architectural treasure of romanticism. The bride can even arrive for her wedding here by boat.
A visit to this unique church is always worthwhile – especially for a day out in the summer to one of the most romantic spots in Berlin or Potsdam.
