Berliner Dom

Berliner Dom Lutheran Cathedral

 

One of the most elegant Lutheran churches in Berlin, perhaps the world, is the Berliner Dom. It is located on Spree Island, nestled among several museums and a park. Originally a Dominican church started in 1465, it became a Lutheran church in 1539. It was heavily damaged in WWII. Although the Sermon church finally re-opened in 1993, the final touches to the dome were not complete until 2002.

I briefly visited the front of the church in 2014 with our Luthertour group. If you have several days in Berlin, the cathedral and museums would be a fantastic way to see some beautiful art and architecture.
