Germanys most important Protestant church was erected here, following
the designs of George Bähr, between 1726 and 1743. Its characteristic
dome, called the "stone bell" owing to its shape, collapsed
on February 15, 1945 under the rain of bombs. An anti-war monument during
the GDR period, it is now being rebuilt as a symbol of conciliation. The
official consecration was in October 2005.
