Expert review of Berliner Dom

Berlin’s Protestant equivalent of St. Peter’s Basilica.

Berlin’s massive Protestant cathedral is the city’s largest, and a popular tourist attraction. The church stays active with tours, services and concerts, and other events. Baroque in style, it's often compared to St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome. The cathedral was completed in 1905, although several cathedrals were located on the site prior to this construction. The building was severely damaged during the Second World War and was subsequently closed until 1993, when it reopened after extensive renovations, and restorations continued until 2006. Visitors can tour the crypt and the dome in addition to the main church, although entry includes rental of a personal audiovisual guide.

Price advice: 

Price with audio guide is 8 euros for adults and 6 euros for concessions. Entrance only is 5 euros for adults, 3 euros for children over 14 and free for children under 14. 

Expert tips: 
The church is closed to tours during services or events.
Visitors must make reservations for a tour in advance and incur an extra cost in addition to the entrance fee.
Concerts usually cost extra.
