The Most Beautiful Perspectives Of The Berliner Dom

Emily D'Silva

Situated in Lustgarten on Museum Island, the Berliner Dom is both the largest church and one of the most prominent and impressive monuments in Berlin. Here are ten beautiful perspectives of the stunning cathedral.
After originally being built as a church in the 15th century, the building has undergone several developments: the old cathedral was constructed between 1745-1747 before being redesigned between 1816 and 1822. The final cathedral as we know it today, was completed in 1905 and has since been subject to further restoration after being damaged in the Second World War. Retaining the fantastic high-renaissance and baroque influences, the architecture of this cathedral is exquisite and consequently one of Berlin’s most sought after sights.
