Architecture in Berlin - D is for Dreifaltigkeitskirche - Holy Trinity Church

(Mohrenstraße/Mauerstraße, Friedrichstadt)

The Holy Trinity Church was built in 1737 by order of Friedrich Willhelm I, King in Prussia and Elector of Brandenburg. Designed by architect Christian August Naumann, this was one of two circular churches in Berlin (the other was the Bethlehemskirche a few blocks south).

The church was damaged in an air raid in 1943. The remaining structure was demolished by East German authorities in the following years. The North Korean Embassy was built on its place between 1969 and 1975.
