The views from around the dome were spectacular! You can walk all the way around and see most of the city. The inside of the cathedral was absolutely stunning!

Climbing the stairs is really worth it... the views from the top of the church are amazing. The church in itself is very beautiful and very close by to some other important attractions.

Gorgeous, well worth the entry fee. If you're lucky or if you check the schedule and plan accordingly you get to listen to the organ playing - this is an unforgetable experience, as it's one of the largest in Europe.

The history of this cathedral is as interesting as its architecture. This church is rich with Reformation history and the interior and artwork are breathtaking.

This is well worth the entrance fee. This building is stunning inside and out, the tombs are majestic especially in the crypt. The entrance fee also allows a trek up the 200 + steps to the dome and the views over the city.

The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights
like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum
Island. The central location makes this one of the
city's most expensive places to live. It is here the
oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence
of some significant transformations, as well. The

between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given

There was no wait time the two times I went. Also, no dress code. However, it was autumn--not a lot of bare shoulders or legs.
