- Behind an old, rusty fence lies one of the city's most atmospheric ruins. Constructed two centuries ago by Berlin's most influential architect, Karl Friedrich Schinkel, all that remains of Elisabethkirche today is the church's skeleton. Wind whistles through the window frames and plaster peels off the brick walls. For more than half a century after its destruction in the War, nobody seemed interested in restoring the neoclassical masterpiece—presumably due to lack of funds. However, there are now plans to transform the building into a major art gallery. Until then, 'ruin enthusiasts' can enjoy the phantom of a church.
