Berlin Cathedral is an ideal destination for families with children. One adult can take up to three children under 18 into the cathedral with an adult ticket. We also offer special worship services for children, family concerts, pre-school and student tours and much more for families. The Sermon Church (Predigtkirche) is fascinating, with its magnificent gold sheen and colourful stained-glass windows.
