Bonhoeffer Tour of Berlin

Sep 08, 2012

IMG_1626This past week I had the great pleasure of giving a two-day Bonhoeffer Tour of Berlin to a group of friends.  We stayed at the historic Adlon Hotel on Unter der Linden and visited many Bonhoeffer sites, including his parents’ home in Charlottenburg, where he was arrested in 1943, the Grunewald home where he grew up, the Zionskirche (pictured), the Bendlerblock where StauffenbergIMG_1625IMG4349-L and others involved in the Valkyrie plot were executed, the site of the former Gestapo Headquarters, the Kaiser-Wilhelms-Gedächtnis Kirche where Bonhoeffer preached, and other sites.  For more photos of the tour — along with descriptions and details — please click here. We also had great meals (yes, there are photos), including a farewell dinner at Lutter & Wegner in the historic Gendarmenmarkt. Anything in pork?
