Berlin Cathedral is a particularly impressive sight. The Protestant church in the Mitte district was built at the end of the 19th century in the neo-renaissance and neo-baroque style. It is the largest Protestant church in Germany in terms of area and was modelled on St. Peter’s Basilica. For exceptional views, it is worth climbing up to the dome of the cathedral: after climbing 270 steps, you can enjoy a panoramic view over the centre of Berlin from a height of 50 metres.
The “Alex”, as Alexanderplatz is usually called by Berliners, is one of the most famous squares in the capital – and the largest! The Alex has an eventful history behind it: until the 1950s it was a parade and drill ground for the military, then it became a transport hub. One of the sights on the square is the World Time Clock, which is reminiscent of GDR times and is now used as a popular meeting place. Practical for sightseeing: many other sights are within walking distance of Alexanderplatz!
