The German Cathedral (Neue Kirche in German) was completed in Friedrichstadt in 1708. Construction took about 7 years. The addition of the domed tower began in 1780.
Like so many historic buildings in Berlin, the Deutscher Dom was substantially destroyed during World War II. Over three decades passed before it was finally rebuilt and subsequently renovated. This restorative process happened in stages between 1977 and 1996.
In 1984, the Protestant church that worshiped in the Berlin Cathedral for over 200 years turned the building over to the state.
Inside the the German Cathedral visitors can view an interactive exhibit spread over 5 floors called Milestones - Sidetracks -Setbacks. It provides and overview of the changes in the parliamentary system from the March Revolution to the present day.
Thirty minute guided tours are available between 11am and 5pm.
