Berlin Cathedral, and the Hohenzollern family crypt it holds, is a true wonder to behold. Once you’ve seen it for the first time, you will likely be drawn to visit again.
The magnificent Neo-Renaissance building is situated in the heart of the capital, in the vicinity of the Lustgarten park. With its imposing architecture, four towers, almost 100-metre-high dome and golden cross, the building is visible from far away and has established itself as of one of Berlin's great landmarks. The direct vicinity is also home to world cultural heritage destinations such as Museum Island, the Deutsches Historisches Museum (German Historical Museum) and the new Humboldt Forum in the Berlin Palace (Berliner Schloss).
