The Daily SHOOT! - Berliner Dom

Berliner Dom, originally uploaded by tgtwb.

One of the many beautiful cathedrals found in Germany, the Berliner Dom is a sight not to be missed.

Facing a small park (open space) where Berliners can sit to read a book, the cathedral was almost destroyed during WWII and remained a ruin until 1973.

Like many churches and synagogues all over Europe, the Dom also houses graves of over 80 members of the Hohenzollern family (noble family and royal dynasty of electors, kings and emperors of Prussia, Germany and Romania).

TIP! Do not miss the roof promenade after climbing up the endless steps leading to the coupole.
