St. Hedwig's Cathedral, Berlin
(4/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web)
Originally constructed in 1773 and situated on the city's Bebelplatz, Berlin's St. Hedwig's Cathedral was the first Catholic church built in Prussia after the advent of Protestantism. The building's grand construction features giant columns and a Roman-style facade. The cathedral's vaulted interior is accentuated by wooden sculptures, a sizeable organ, and a variety of religious objects. Although it was heavily damaged during World War II, the church has since been thoroughly restored to its former glory and remains today the seat of the archbishop of Berlin.

  • Unique design for a Catholic church. Individual chapels downstairs are worth exploring
  • Attended the service at this beautiful cathedral. The chapels downstairs are interesting
  • St Hedwig’s Cathedral which is the Catholic church built by King Frederick II. The church was built after the reformation and is modelled after the Pantheon in Rome. I guess everyone wanted a Pantheon in their city.
  • The catholic chief church in Berlin. Nothing special from the architectural point of view but highly symbolic
  • Not as ornate as your typical Catholic church. Go downstairs to see the individual chapels.
