Berlin Cathedral, Berlin

(6,500+ reviews on the web)
Architectural Building Religious Site
Don't miss a chance to see the city from the dome of Berlin Cathedral, one of the region's major landmarks. This imposing structure stands as if frozen in time centuries ago. But the building actually suffered massive damage during World War II and underwent extensive renovation in 1994. The biggest church in the city, this Renaissance building serves not only as a Protestant house of worship but also as a concert hall and a museum. Inside, you can see a lavish marble altar and royal tombs. The organ, with more than 7,000 pipes, often plays a starring role in concerts. Pick up an audio guide at the entrance, or arrange for a private tour of the cathedral before you make the trip. Put Berlin Cathedral at the forefront of your travel plans using our Berlin trip itinerary maker.

  • It is obvious why this is a historical and cultural landmark, just looking at the architecture and design. Inside is visually breathtaking, and one could fill an album with pictures of the main auditorium alone. However, the highlight is climbing up to the dome, which takes some stamina, I won't lie, but when you get to the top and walk around the perimeter of the main dome, it's a unique experience. Well worth the effort. Even on a foggy, overcast day like today, it was amazing and inspiring.
  • Stunning church which we were fortunate enough to visit wile the organist was rehearsing. You can also climb to the top and walk around the edge of the rooftop which gives you magnificent views around Berlin. Well worth the visit.
  • “Stunningly beautiful Church” What a magnificent sight, it is truly breath taking in all it's glory and the parishioners of the Berlin Cathedral should be commended for the upkeep. I was in awe from the moment I first saw this church even from the outside I enjoyed the spectacle of the architecture and workmanship that has been devoted to this beautiful building. Then you walk inside, wow, there's the altar in all it's glory. Enough said, go and visit as you will not be disappointed.
  • Great place with beautiful architecture! Plus, you can go up into the dome! Be careful though, there are a TON of stairs!
  • Stunning Cathedral, beautiful from the outside. Haven't had the opportunity to go inside yet. Can get a stunning view from the Lustgarten!
