Heavily destroyed in the Second World War and especially the Battle for Berlin but rebuilt to the original design. Wonderful views of the cathedral from the small park in front where you can look onto the Cathedral with the TV tower in the background a good contrast of the Germany before the war and the Germany after. Inside it's like most major cathedrals you'd come across in this part of the world but what made it special for me is if you pay a few euros extra you can go onto the roof and you have wonderful views of the Brandenburg Gate, the Spree, Museum Insel and the TV tower on the opposing side. The basement also holds a lot of tombs and historic artefacts that you can explore. What makes this Cathedral so special for me is it's location its just across the road from the Humboldt Museum, very close to Museum Insel, DDR Museum and within walking distance of both the University and the Brandenburg Gate.
