special security procedures

This measure applies for concerts, visits and church services and is unfortunately necessary for security reasons. There are several lockers in the Cathedral arcades which we invite you to use for your luggage.

Prices – Cathedral upkeep fee

You are supporting Berlin Cathedral with your admission fee! Unlike other parishes, Berlin Cathedral Parish has to generate 97% of its annual budget itself. Only 3% originates from church taxes and grants awarded by the state of Berlin. We require approximately €15,000 PER DAY for the upkeep of the listed building, musicians, worship services, electricity, security, members of staff and much more.
