Berliner Dom

A to Z Challenge: B = Berliner Dom

A to Z Challenge: BB = Berliner Dom 

Ok, I could have used B for Barcelona, but if I did that, I would be writing this post until the A to Z Challenge was long finished.  So, to keep it simple and share something different.

So welcome to Berlin and the Berliner Dom.

On my trip last year to Berlin, I got to take in a nice treat — an organ concert in the Berliner Dom, or the Berlin Cathedral. It is located on Museum Island in the heart of Berlin. This massive structure boasts one of the world’s largest pipe organs. To hear the concert, we got to sit in the Royal Gallery — high above the main floor. To access to the gallery, we used the Monarch’s staircase.  The music from the pipe organ was incredible, especially being able to listen to is from the Royal Gallery.

The building itself is beautiful and can be a nice peaceful retreat during a hectic day of visiting Berlin. There are a number of different tours, including a walk to the dome, which has its own fabulous view of Berlin.

Here are some of my photos of the Berliner Dom.

  1. I love Berlin! We’ve been twice and have yet to go inside the Berlin Dom but it’s gorgeous from the outside. The entire Museum Island is a treat really. Great B, very original 🙂

  2. You are right, the Museum Island is a treat in itself. I was quite enamoured by all that architecture and the details. Never got to experience a concert in the Berlin Dom though. My kids freaked out at the fountain in front after a history walk in the hot afternoon sun. Loved your post. Brought back memories. http://ilakshee.blogspot.in/
