Berlin Travel Tip:
Gethsemane Church (German: Gethsemanekirche) is one out of four church buildings of the Lutheran Northern Prenzlauer Berg Congregaton (German: Evangelische Kirchengemeinde Prenzlauer Berg-Nord), a member of the Evangelical Church of Berlin-Brandenburg-Silesian Upper Lusatia, an umbrella organisation comprising Lutheran, Calvinist (Reformed) and united Protestant congregations.
Gethsemane Church is the best known church in the locality of Prenzlauer Berg, in Berlin's borough of Pankow. The church was named after the Garden of Gethsemane (Old Aramaic גת שמנא, transliterated Gath Šmānê, Hebrew: גת שמנים, translit. Gath Šmānîm, lit. "oil press", transliteration in Greek: ΓεΘσημανι Gethsēmani) at the foot of the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem. Christians revere the place for the Twelve Apostles and Jesus of Nazareth having prayed there the night before his crucifixion. Church and congregation played a crucial role before and during the Wende (peaceful revolution) in the former German Democratic Republic (GDR) in autumn 1989. From 1891 to 1893 the building was erected following the plans of Baurat August Orth.
