The Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church is a Protestant church affiliated with the regional congregation of the German Evangelical church. Located in Berlin on the famous Kurfurstendamm ,the remaining spire of the old church, damaged in World War II is a well-known landmark of West Berlin, nicknamed the 'Hollow Tooth' by Berliners. The current church, and chapel tower, built in the early 1960s, are sometimes called 'the lipstick and the powder compact' for their respective shapes, and are notable for their extensive use of stained glass. The damaged remnants of the 1890s church were not lost, but have been collected into a memorial hall on the ground floor of the church as a reminder of past events.
