I’ve missed you! Have you missed me? Alright, you don’t have to answer that. I’ve already shown you the Berlin Wall, the Fernsehturm and some of Berlin’s beautiful street art, but today I’ve got something a little more refined for you. We’re going to visit the Berlin Cathedral (or Berliner Dom as the Germans call it) – a parish church built between 1894 and 1905, designed by a father-and-son team of Julius and Otto Raschdorff to celebrate Italian Noe-Renaissance. Look at me, knowing things and shit. Impressive, eh?
My visit of the Cathedral was a lot less refined than the previous paragraph made it seem. In fact, I only visited it by a mistake of sorts – my friends and I wanted to go up the Fernsehturm to have a look at the city from a high vantage point, but the 2-hour waiting time put us off. Getting onto the roof of what we only referred to as “that big church there” at the time was our only chance to take photos of other buildings whose names we did not know and it was not one we were going to pass up.Before I destroy the (very few) remnants of travel blogging credibility I still have left, let’s go inside!
