Prince Elector - Johann Cicero

Known as the biggest church in Berlin, the Berliner Dom has never been officially a cathedral; it is the parish church of an Evangelical congregation and therefore has never hosted a catholic bishop.

The first structure built was a Castle in 1469. In 1747 it became a baroque cathedral, the main church of the Prussian Dukes. That building was demolished in 1894 and replaced by the one we can see nowadays, which was built from 1895 to 1905. The Berliner Dom was severely damaged during the 2nd World War and its reconstruction took 18 years, re-opening in 1993.

The Berliner Dom faces the Lustgarten garden and the Royal Palace Berliner Stadtschloss. It is 114 meters long, 73 meters wide and 116 meters tall, much bigger than previous buildings constructed in that place. It was conceived as a big protestant church to offset the influence of the Saint Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican.

A few steps from the Berliner Dom is the Museum Island, one of the main attractions in Berlin.
