Hard to believe that this Cathedral has been renovated only 50 years ago and by the DDR. Climbing up 276 stairs is a nice experience.

“Pure Beauty is Berlin Cathedral”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

Myself and a friend visited this beautiful structure.

It was immensely breath taking the design and pane glass windows were just breath taking.

It's easy to walk through and there's no hussle/bussle and stress of overcrowding.

This is a do it at your own pace kind of place.

“Must see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013 via mobile

Not the oldest building but it is really beautiful, the inside is stunning and you can climb the steps to the external walkway around the dome for some excellent views across the city, you must do this if you are able to manage the steps.
They have recently opened the crypt to visitors where you are able to view the caskets of the past royalty, many of whole did not live past childhood, an interesting and sobering place.

“Great views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

I found inside the cathedral was beautiful. Loved how you could climb up and enjoy different views of the sanctuary. You can also get some great views of Berlin from the dome when climbing all the way to top. The crypt was interesting to visit too.
