Berliner Dom, an large cathedral, is located in the centre of Berlin, and stands out by its empressive dome.

The baptistery and wedding chapel, the Emperial stairwell, the Hohenzoller crypt, the cathedral museum and the Predigtkirche with its imposing dome are particularly known today. They are certainly worth a visit. Thd cathedral is separated into three sections; its style is that of a baroque-influenced High Renaissance church. The initially included monument church no longer exists. Its dome was held by 4 towers, and 113 metres high. Many New Testament and reformatory elements can be found inside of the cathedral.

Historical Information

The construction's history dates back to the year 1465, when the first church was started to be built on the Spree island. In 1747, a baroque church with dome was erected, which was later renewed in Classicistic style. Further renovations ensued, until Emperor Wilhelm II followed Julius Carl Raschdorff's advice in 1894, and had the cathedral demolished.

The new cathedral was constructed as a court chapel for the Hohenzollern between 1894 and 1905. Most of the church was destroyed in World War II. The cathedral was re-built 30 years later, with the exterior works being finished in 1983. The eighth dome mosaik was revealed in 2000, concluding the interior works.

The easiest way to get to the cathedral is on public transport.
