Surrounded by the modern buildings of the Kulturforum, St Matthauskirche escaped the wholesale demolition of the area by Albert Speer as he pursued his plan for Germania. It was badly damaged by fire in 1945 and rebuilt between1956 and 1960. A simple design in an Italian style, the striped brickwork creates a very striking building.
