The Berlin Cathedral is not only a Protestant church where church services are held, but is also used for a wide variety of events. For example, it is also used for state ceremonies and concerts. With an area of 6270 m², it is the largest church in Germany. The Berlin Cathedral is located on Museum Island. It was built at the turn of the century between 1894 and 1905 by Julius Raschdorff. In doing so, he took his cue from both the Neo-Baroque and the Neo-Renaissance styles.
Almost the entire basement of the Berlin Cathedral is filled with the Hohenzollern Crypt. This contains 90 tombs of princes and kings with their families from the House of Hohenzollern. Between the 16th century and the 20th century, people who shaped Germany and the city of Berlin found their final resting place here. The development of grave culture in Germany can be traced particularly well from the graves.
After the Berlin Cathedral suffered massive damage in the Second World War, the exterior was rebuilt in a modified form until 1984 and the interior was reconstructed in its original state until 2002. Time and again, the reconstruction sparks fundamental discussions.
