Berliner Dom, Berlin

4.5
Don't miss a chance to see the city from the dome of Berliner Dom, 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.

  • This is one of the most famous and known places of Berlin and it deserves to be! I was there and completely fascinated by the beauty of the building!  more »
  • Really beautiful, the Cathedral overlooking the river and there are many small shops is really impressive! We visited in because it was paying but already from the outside says it all ... fantastic.

  • Awesome place. I took so many nice photos there. Even the prototypes are art pieces. As a detail i loved the bee hives on the terrace. Entrance is not free as usual. I think it was 7 euros to enter. You can use your museum pass if you have purchased it.
  • Overpriced entry. Definitely the exterior is better than the interior. I wouldn't waste my money again here. I would definitely recommend you take a stroll around the Lustgarten and admire the architecture from the outside and enjoy the views, mostly if you are short on money and time.
  • One of the best monuments to visit in Berlin with a panorama rooftop! This is also buried place of the Kaisers of Prussia, so you will find their lives, a bit of german history! The dome in the center of the cathedral is huge and is because of it that this monument is famous! Do not miss it! It’s not free, but you won’t regret!
  • A huge and beautiful church at center of Berlin. Opposite is a big park where you can seat and have a good view to this church. Try some photo shoots from the park.
  • It’s as beautiful inside as it is outside. I recommend going up into the dome just before sunset to get a spectacular view of the city. The actual cathedral is grand and offers so many detailed pictorials of the stories of the Bible. The pipe organ was built and designed specifically for this church and its acoustics. If you’re there when they start a service, you’ll get a chance to appreciate it fully. (Just do not take photos at all of the actual service.) Don’t skip the crypt as you’ll be amazed at the differences in each sarcophagus. Why were some so elaborate and others, while in marble, so simple? The deterioration is saddening too. But, the ones deteriorating the most may help you answer the question of details and materials.
