Berlin-Mitte Travel Tip:
Deutscher Dom, Berlin
Berlin’s Deutscher Dom – not to be confused with the Berliner Dom which is the largest protestant church in Berlin – is best known as one of the three buildings which make up the spectacular
trinity ensemble in the Gendarmenmarkt square in Mitte, including its twin the Französische Dom (French Cathedral) and the Konzerthaus or Concert Hall.
The Deutscher Dom was erected in 1708 under Elector Friedrich III, who had crowned himself King Friedrich I in 1701 and was intent, along with his wife Queen Sophie Charlotte, in turning Berlin into a royal residence to rival Versailles. It was known as the Neue Kirche (New Church) and only later referred to as the German Church. It is considered remarkable because of its five-sided floor plan. No church services are held here.
Hours: Tue-Sun 10am - 7pm, (October - April 10am - 6pm). Admission is free.
Address: Gendarmenmarkt, 10117 Berlin
