Presentation
With its magnificent dome, the Berlin Cathedral is definitely one of the capital’s crowd pullers.
Located in the northern area of the Spree Island, many of the buildings that were previously located here date all the way back to the 15th century.
In the 19th century, the ruling family of Germany, the house of Hohenzollern, was living right next door in the Berlin Castle and they thought that Schinkel’s rather modest domed cathedral no longer corresponded to the image they wanted to project of their family. King Frederick William IV thus decided that a magnificent cathedral should be built.

The cornerstone of this beautiful cathedral was laid in 1894 and the inauguration ceremony took place in 1905. During World War II, the cathedral suffered heavy damage. Only in 1975 did the GDR begin restoring it. The restoration was finally completed four years after the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1993.

Tourists can see the ministry church and its impressive cupola along with the baptismal and matrimonial chapels, the imperial staircase, the Hohenzollern crypt with nearly 100 coffins dating back four centuries and the Cathedral museum. Visitors can also go up to the top of the dome to have a remarkable view of the centre of Berlin.

As an alternative to traditional travel and city guides, visitors can explore the cathedral on their own. By app. As a treasure hunt. The Global Treasure App provides exciting questions about various places across the city, with multiple choices for answers. At the end, many places will give the treasure hunters a small thank you gift.
