Heilandskirche Sacrow Review

You'd be forgiven for wondering if you'd been transported to Italy when you first glimpse this dreamy lakeside church, complete with Campanile (“bell-tower”) and mosaic-adorned colonnade, from across the Havel Lake or through the Sacrower Schlosspark near Potsdam. Actually, the church suffered a grim fate for many years, trapped in the no-man’s land of the Outer Berlin Wall. From 1961 to 1989, the East German government closed the church, fearing that it would serve as a hiding place for those trying to flee. Now it is restored and in use, and makes the perfect endpoint to a scenic walk from the lakeside village of Kladow. To reach it, take the S75 to S-bahnhof Heerstrasse, and then the X34 Bus to Alt-Kladow, then follow the Sakrower Landstrasse.
