“Wonderful Architecture”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

Berlin Cathedral or Berliner dom is one of the main attraction of Berlin. It's situated one side of the Lustgarten and in the bank of river spree.. You can easily reach there by bus (For example 100).

The architectural view is simply wonderful. The structure itself and its surrounding is a wonderful place to see. If you want to enter, you need to pay around 7 Euro.

“Just awesome...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2013

The structure is remarkable and makes you want to take too many photos. It is set in picturesque surroundings with all you would expect from a romantic era fairy tale. Noticed a few beggars around the park - not sure if they are genuine or good actors! The coffee shop next to the church seemed somewhat misplaced though and made me question the real purpose of the building.

“Gorgeous church & interesting crypt”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2013

If you are fascinated by architecture, you'll love this church. It is very beautiful, from top to bottom. Be sure to get the discount if you get the Berlin Welcome Card. We stopped here on a Sunday afternoon, and the crowds weren't bad at all. It was a nice relief from the heat outside, and it was nice to be able to sit on the pews to take a break from walking around. You could spend a good 30 minutes just marveling at the inside of the church, though you may want to allot about 2 hours for the full experience. Just a tip: the higher up you go within the church, the more narrow the stairs get. If you want to go to the very top, make sure you're not already tired out. Be sure to go down to the bottom of the church to the crypt, where many members of royalty lay. We found it to be the most interesting part of the experience, and we almost skipped it!

“Another beautiful Cathedral in Germany”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2013

When in Berlin this is worth visiting this Cathedral if you have the time. It is beautiful on the outside and not so impressive on the inside. There is a beautiful lawn in front of it which makes the Cathedral look even grander. It makes for a great picture with the group on the lawn with the Cathedral in the background.

“Breath taking”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2013

The cathedral was so magnificent! It was worth the money. The only thing is that I ended up having a panic attack when I reached the Dome. I didn't know we had to walk outside to reach the exit, and we walked very high up! As long as you are prepared for that, you can get some amazing sky high photos of the city. Luckily my husband took over the camera duties as he tried to drag me around the dome to the exit lol. But I recommend it. I wish I had not gotten a bout of vertigo and had enjoyed making it to the top of the cathedral more.
