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.
