    The magnificent Berlin Cathedral is considered one of the most important Protestant churches in Germany. He stands on the Museum Island, directly opposite the former city palace. There were already two predecessor churches on the site, but they were demolished in favor of the magnificent building at the end of the 19th century. Despite its ancient appearance, the foundation stone of the cathedral was not laid until 1894.

    Today you can visit the cathedral daily. Especially beautiful is the view, which you can enjoy on the circuit around the dome.

    Directly in front of the cathedral in the Lustgarten there is a beautiful, "floor-level" fountain in the summer, which offers a refreshment for one and above all the children!

    It's my favorite building in Berlin. It has so much charm and history. Anyone who comes to Berlin must have seen the Berlin Cathedral. The true landmark of Berlin.

    The Berlin Cathedral (actually Oberpfarr- and cathedral church to Berlin) in the church district Berlin Stadtmitte is an Evangelical church in Berlin's Mitte district of the same district on the northern part of the Spreeinsel, which is here called Museum Island. It is one of the largest Protestant churches in Germany and the largest church in Berlin

    Built from 1894 to 1905 according to plans by Julius Raschdorff in reference to the Italian High Renaissance and the Baroque, the cathedral is one of the most important Protestant churches in Germany. The listed building consists of the central sermon church under the dome and the christening and wedding church. The main portal is located on the west side of the building at Lustgarten. In the tomb of the cathedral rest numerous members of the House of Hohenzollern.

    The dome construction was nominated in 2007 for the award as Historic Landmark of Civil Engineering in Germany.

    The total height is 116 meters on a base of about 73 meters × 93 meters (originally 73 meters × 114 meters before demolishing the monument church). The dome has a peak height of 74.8 meters and a diameter of 33 meters. The cathedral offers about 1650 seats

    The Berlin Cathedral (officially: Oberpfarr- und Domkirche zu Berlin) at the Lustgarten on the Museum Island is a Protestant church and dynastic burial place in Berlin's Mitte district. Built between 1894 and 1905 by Julius Raschdorff in Neo-Renaissance and Neo-Baroque style, the monument is the largest Protestant church in Germany in terms of area and one of the most important dynastic burial sites in Europe. In addition to church services, the cathedral is also used for state acts, concerts and other events.

    Since the memorial church on the north side was demolished in 1975, Berlin Cathedral has consisted of the large sermon church in the middle, the smaller baptismal and wedding church on the south side and the Hohenzollern crypt, which occupies almost the entire basement. Heavily damaged in World War II, the cathedral was simplified on the outside until 1984 and rebuilt on the inside until 2002, true to the original. A restoration of the original exterior is discussed again and again.
