  • I recommend the observation tower. Cost of 3 €, and in fine weather, you can see a big chunk of Berlin, including the holiday season Gendarmenmarkt. Intimate. The only pity is that the view can be enjoyed by the glass, but so worth it. Staircase comfortable and wide. The entrance to the Tower on the side of the Cathedral, stairs, from the Deutscher Dom.

  • 3E x do 265gradini and see little or nothing because between the grids and the statues the view is completely covered! Cute to see out the 2chiese but absolutely save 3 euros x other attractions that much here they charge also x l air we breathe.

  • The French Cathedral is good for many things. Have already classical concerts is enjoyed and also weddings get. The highlight for me is however to run the stairs in the DOM up and above 360 ° round view over Berlin's Centre.

  • This is the Französischer Dom, which essentially means The French Cathedral in German. Now, why would there be a French church in a German capital? This is where taking a walking tour is brilliant. Running through a quick history of Prussian, we know that this was built by Frederick II as an admiration of French culture. His father was known as the Soldier-King, which amassed a great Prussian army only to never had used them. Frederick on the other hand, loved culture and the arts but turned out to be the most formidable conqueror and warrior, expanding Prussia’s territory and power. He was dubbed Frederick the Great and Prussia under Frederick is often described as "not a state in possession of an army, but an army in possession of a state." The French Cathedral is located in the beautiful Gendarmenmarkt square which was expanded and made the seat of high culture by Frederick the Great. On this square are two major cathedrals, Französischer and Deutscher Dom as well as Konzerthaus Berlin. That makes this square, one of the prettiest square in Berlin.
  • Beautiful church, inside and out. A lovely place to visit and you can see it from the patio of Augustiner am Gendarmenmarkt!
  • Gloriously imposing, this French cathedral signifies Berlin's openness to those arriving from other countries. A very popular square.
  • You can go up by stairs (250 steps). They don't have elevator. You will have a nice view of Berlin from tower. If you like to see the church too you need to go out and, turn right and walk to main entrance. For tower you need to but ticket.
  • A beautiful church, both externally and internally. but I recommend to visit it from the inside.
