Berlin Cathedral, Berlin

4.5
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.

  • Superb architecture inside and out and a must visit - the wow factor is worth it. The fitter individual can make the ascent to the upper viewing area (100+ steps!) for even more stunning views. The lo...  more »
  • This was probably my favourite place in all of Berlin during my 5 day stay. Entry is 7€ (5€ with Berlin Welcome Card) and includes entry to the main cathedral, to the 360° dome walkway and to the cryp...  more »
  • This building impossibly charmed me with its beauty. I traveled to Berlin with the Brandenburg Gate, the Reichstag and in particular that I want to see I will admit that I became aware of the existence of this monument directly in Berlin when I was buying postcards. Ta ravishingly in a postcard of the building looked like so I said that I have to see it! On the first day, we missed but the other day I convince friends that we went there even when it was terribly far away. When I arrived there and saw the building I immediately fell in love with. It is really very fotogenicka and I did a lot of Nice shots. This building is one of those shows that people know to form and not just destroy. And this creation is really impressive. We didn't go into the Interior of the lack of funds to a total of regret but we're just so happy that we were students we ever in Berlin. I encourage everyone who visits Berlin to see this wonderful building, at least from the outside, when they no longer from the inside.

  • The best cathedral i have ever seen . period. A treasure trove of history , this cathedral has seen it all ; its splendid in beauty , architecture and spirit ! Much larger than it looks, the central hall is a dream. Beautiful ensemble and the central hall has many rare artifacts and exhibits/. They have a museum and a tour - the charge is nominal - I would highly recommend it. You can also climb to the top of the great hall and its surreal experience, you can go out of the main dome and the views of the city from there are fantastic and the best you could ever get. You can see the city 360 degrees. A quick warning though - the climb is very steep and there are many steps - not for everyone. There is a cellar with almost all great king's cemetery and its preserved so well. The church also has a shop and a small cafe outside of it. The church was demolished quite a bit but the way they have resurrected it but have left some parts of it untouched like the color of the dome is beautiful. Overall , this cathedral enchants me every time I have been there and it is a must do on my itinerary to Berlin. Its a must must must see.
  • What a wonderful church and tour. It costs money to go inside. We were a family of five and only had to pay for the two adult tickets and the kids came along (I think the total price was around 14 euros). Inside you get to see one of the most beautiful domes in the world and some great art. It is a WOW moment when you see it. Then you get to climb a narrow staircase (when others are coming down the same path) to the top where you go outside around the dome and have wonderful views of the entire city. You are in paths that are only around 3ft wide. You end the tour underneath the church where you get to see the tombs of former kings, queens, princes, and princesses. That was also pretty interesting. Recommend.
  • Beautiful, grand cathedral. The audio tour is well worth it. It'll take you about an hour and a half to walk through it all. Make sure you make the effort to go up to the dome. The view is magnificent. Mass is held 12noon and 6pm every day. We went early in the morning at 9:30am and lucked out. First ones there and got to hear the organist rehearse. Student cards from around the world are accepted. We only had to pay 5€ instead of the adult price of 7€. Bathrooms are 0.5€ to use.
  • The breathtaking view of the church and the nearby areas are noteworthy. You can take a walk down the lake and enjoy the city life of berlin. For getting an entry inside the church you need to pay 7€.
  • If the sky is clear try visiting in the morning. The light is beautiful and the walk across the bridge to the museum is perfect with boats floating by. The interior photos below are from when there was an installation so it may look different.
