Berliner Dom - Berlin Cathedral, Berlin: 110 reviews and 218 photos
The cathedral of Berlin was built between 1895-1905 in neorenaissance style on a spot where a church from 15th century was before.
It looks impressive due to its size, it must be the largest church in Berlin as it is 116m tall. This protestant cathedral (that supposed to be the answer to the catholic cathedral of St.Peter in Rome) was seriously damaged during the WWII bombing, so it was reconstructed at the end of 20th century although from what I saw they still try to restore parts of it.
The interior is interesting too with works from fartists like Guido Reni, Fiedrich August Stuller and Daniel Raugh but what I liked most was the organ. The crypt is also interesting (in a creepy way) with the 80 sarcophagus of Prussian royal family..
The view from the top supposed to be nice but we never gone up there because we were on a hurry for the airport. Next time...
The cathedral is open daily 09.00-20.00 (Sundays from 12.00)
Address: Karl-Liebknecht-Straße, Berlin-Mitte
Directions: S-Bahn: Hackescher Markt, I usually walk there from Alexanderplatz. Bus #100 pass from the cathedral too.
