Chapel of Reconciliation, Berlin, Germany

The chapel of reconciliation, prominently located at the Berlin Wall strip at Bernauer Street, reminds of the reconciliation church, which was demolished shortly before the fall of the wall. The load bearing rammed earth construction became a famous building that is visited daily by guests from all over the world.
