The Berliner Dom
The Berliner Dom is a Baroque Cathedral located on an island in the River Spree, also known as the Museum Island. It was severely damaged during World War II, but reconstruction began only in 1975. One of the most interesting items in the richly decorated interior of the church is the reconstructed pipe organ, built by Wilhelm Sauer.

Angels of Berlin
The Berliner Dom is one of of those stunners, with a history going back to 1451. Head in and go all the way to the top of the dome to get a bird's eye view of the city. But don't miss the crypt below.

Berliner Dom at Night
The stunning, mixed-style architectural beauty that is the Berliner Dom is perhaps best viewed at night. After darkness descends on the city and the lights illuminate the emerald domes of the church, located on Museum Island in the Mitte borough, one may lose some of the other details of the facade but the building takes on its most reverent yet unpretentious mask. See it during the day but definitely don't miss it during the nacht!

Berlin Highlights
Berlin is another of my favorite cities that I have visited. Even though this is a large city, it was one that was easy to navigate and fun to get lost in.

Berlin Cathedral
While I am not very religious, I was raised Lutheran, and the Berlin Cathedral is a Lutheran Church so I felt right at home! The church itself is absolutely gorgeous, but the best part of our tour that day was getting to hear an organ recital by the cathedral's organist! My great-grandfather was a part of the Wurlitzer group, so of course I thought about him and how much he would have loved hearing the organ play.

See Berlin from the Berliner Dom Walkway
Not for those with weak lungs! Ascend 270 steps into the heights of the Berliner Dom and you will be rewarded with this view from the dome walkway. Descend into the depths afterwards to roam the Hohenzollern Crypt, featuring tombs and burial monuments of historic importance.
