We had just left Gendarmenmarkt and headed for Museumsinsel when we came across this side by side domed building. We stopped to discover it was a Catholic cathedral based on the Roman Pantheon. Inside the dome mesmerizes you and part of the church descends to...More

It is ironic that the Protestant Cathedral in Berlin is characterised by flamboyance and the Catholic Cathedral by complete simplicity. I don’t mean to be frivolous: but the war did some favours to religious architecture. The reconstructed St Hedwig’s is beautiful in its plainness. A...More

I didn't go in but it was beautiful from the outside. It *is* a Catholic church (many were converted during the Reformation it seems) and finished in the 1770s It has been reconstructed and reconsecrated since heavy damage inflicted in WWII. On the opposite side...More

Roman Catholic Cathedral located on the Bebelplatz. It is the seat of the archbishop of Berlin. Nice simple interior including an impressive Organ. Hoarding obscures a lot of the exterior views of the church.

The centre 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
