The Marienkirche (St. Mary’s Church) is one of the six original medieval church buildings in the center of Berlin. The age of the church site and structure are not precisely known although it was first mentioned in German literature in 1292.
It has been remodeled several times over time, the latest being in 1969/1970. Although the majority of the church has been remodeled in red brick, the original 13th century field stones that make up the foundation of the church can still be seen to this day. We recommend walking around the church to see all of the different types of stone used in its construction.
Visitors are free to enter the church and walk around the interior, provided no service or event is taking place. The inside of the church is really amazing. Visitors will enjoy the beautiful architecture, and old world paintings that line the walls.
The Marienkirche is currently under construction although it is open to the public.
