Built from 1824 to 1830 according to plans by Karl Friedrich Schinkel, the Friedrichswerdersche Kirche (Friedrichswerder Church) is probably the most authentic building by its creator. With the church, Schinkel created a major work of German neo-Gothic architecture.

Since 2020, the structural condition of 2012 has been restored after neighboring new buildings caused a dramatic longitudinal crack through the entire nave. The light guidance through the high windows, which provides warm daylight, was preserved. In exchange, the height of the neighboring buildings was reduced in places.

In the gallery, the documentation "Schinkel's Work in Berlin" provides information about his buildings such as the Altes Museum, the Neue Wache and the Schauspielhaus (now the Konzerthaus). The showpiece of the sculpture exhibition is Johann Gottfried Schadow's original model of the "Princess Group," a double statue of the princesses Luise and Friederike of Prussia (1795).

Works of the Berlin School of Sculpture dominate the show with sculptures from the holdings of the National Gallery. The works from the Schinkel period to the Empire illuminate international references. The nave with its neo-Gothic ribbed vaults is a jewel that commands respect for Berlin's building heritage.
