The cathedral is beautiful. There are a lot of stairs up to the dome (signs at the bottom warning of this are not exaggerating), but it's worth the effort - walking around on the outside of the dome, taking in the views over Berlin and exterior details of the church is a great experience.

The Berlin Cathedral is located in the northern area of Spree islands which i visited shortly after an exhaustive visits to the neighboring museums.From a distance the Cathedral`s magnificent dome attracts you apart from the fact that it is the largest Protestant church in Germany attracting thousands of visitors from Germany & abroad.I found the entry fees to the cathedral...

Stunning structure! It appeared just as I was walking to museum island. I was wondering if I had missed a turn and the it was. The Cathedral is an eye popping building from the outside with amazing pipe organ in the inside; 7000 pipes to be exact! On Aug 1, Ingrid Arthur and the 100% Gospel Choir appeared. It was... More

The price to get in is high, but still do it , cauze it is unique in being a "homely cathedral ", viz. : Emperor Wilhelm II lived across the street ( His old city-palace is rebuilt at the moment and will be also worthwhile to visit next year ) and wanted a sort of "feel good " cathedral with...

The cathedral is beautiful and you can walk the 230 odd steps to the top where you have a view of all of Berlin. You can also walk down into the Crypt. A great way to spend a couple of hours.

Good views of the city from the top, also a pleasant spot to just watch the world go by from one the many benches outside. Tor buses pass here every 20mins

The Berlin Dom is well worth a visit , the views from the dome are wonderful. The inside is worth just wandering around and taking ibn=n the painting and sculptures.

Staying in Mitte

Neighborhood Profile
Mitte
The center of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighborhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
