Berlin Cathedral definitely not go unnoticed; from the outside it's very beautiful and fascinating, but it is worth spending a few euro and visit the interior; there are different floors but it's really beautiful and unique. If you dare, climb all the steps and get to the dome: from there you get a view of Berlin of incomparable beauty.

Built in 1905, the cathedral is very pretty, and we climbed the 267 steps to the dome to see out over the city. Even though it was a cold, drizzly, windy day, the view was still great.

You have to pay to get inside this massive church (about 8euros) but it is so worth it! I'm not normally that keen on going into churches, however, for 8 euros you can (if you fit enough) climb the seemingly never-ending staircases to get out onto the roof which gives an amazing view of the city similar to tv tower...

We decided to head to the museum quarter and although I'm not normally interested in Cathedrals this visit provided a stunning interior and a great walk to the top to see Berlin from a birds eye view. We were able to move around the central dome and from here we could orient ourselves with the main landmarks of Berlin -... More

I do not normally visit the interior of cathedrals but I'm so glad that I did on this occasion. The interior is stunning and I was amazed to learn it was not Catholic. The crypt was also a very interesting place. Unfortunately, due to snow, there was no access to the outside area at the top of the building. Must... More

The Cathedral is sited at one of the ends of museum island, so if you are visiting there it is well worth adding this in. There is a small entry fee, which can include access to the viewing platform which is located around the outside of the top of main Dome. To reach this there is a climb up a... More

Nice visit if you have a hour or two free while in Berlin. There is a fee, and I don't believe the climb to the top of the dome is wheelchair accessible.

I did not go inside the cathedral given the time crunch I had. But there is a very big open place, River, A very big museum around. There is a art sale across the river. I felt good being there at the moment. I cant given an idea of architecture and all but the Feel is good.
