    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.

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

    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!

    A year ago, the cross and the golden balls were also renovated.

    Berlin is an unbelieving city - only 25% of the population belongs to a Christian church. What does the Berliner say: ick gloobe to Jott, but I'm not so sure about it
