Lovely Cathedral on the river and next to the DDR museum as well as the Museum Island complex. Small entrance fee and once inside plenty of time to admire the lovely gold/gilt ceilings and art work. This Cathedral is very quiet and cool and a very relaxing place to reflect on how life must have been in the past few... More

There are some cathedrals that are so noisy that they are no longer places of worship. We visited the Berliner Dom early in the morning and had it to ourselves. The sense of stillness and quiet inside was in stark contrast to the traffic outside. How the building survived a World War and the Communist Era has to be something... More

My husband and I went for a day trip to Museum Island. I didn't think to plan a visit to the Cathedral, thinking my husband wouldn't care much for it. Once he laid eyes in it, he insisted we go there first. And I'm glad we did- the walk up to the terrace is quite a little trek! Of course,... More

A very butifull church with a fantastic interior. Some how a very nice downzing of the Church of Skt Peter in Rome. The view from the top is worth all the steps and is fantastic.

Love this place. It is so large and impressive that it's hard to not stand and stare at it for hours. The best view in my opinion is from the Lustgarden near the river, so you get a good perspective of the fountain with the Dom in the background. It costs to go inside, and personally I don't feel as... More

Could not believe they charge to enter a cathedral. Have never seen this before in Europe. We did not pay the entrance fee. The Cathedral needs to be cleaned.

€7 to spend an hour or maybe hour and half to see some amazing paintings and a magnificent cathedral. Try to sit back and wait for school trips to become a distant memory and the experience is so much nicer. A walk to the globe is up some small stairs and narrow staircase but well worth the walk as view... More

I went to this church since I heard it was going to be very good. It is a very nice church, but not world class. The view from tower is great though. The museum is not that good.

I visited this Church during my stay in Berlin. The cashier accepted credit cards but wasn't friendly. We got a discount on adimission with our berlin welcome card but It wasn't worth it. There was no stainglass windows or any kind of art inside. The admission includes a climb up the stairs for a view from above. We walking part... More

The State paid 11.5 million Marks under the direction of Kaiser William 11, and it was inaugurated in 1905. This included the magnificent organ. This is an Evangelical Church, but don't ask me to explain this, it is far too complicated. However, it was to compete with Saint Peter's in Rome. However, during WW 2 first the windows were blown...

Staying in Mitte

Neighborhood Profile
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.
