The basics

The Deutscher Dom is no longer used as a cathedral and no longer holds church services. Instead, the historic church is now a museum devoted to the development of Germany’s liberal parliamentary system and the foundation of the Federal Republic of Germany. Exhibitions provide a detailed look at the different German political parties, the parliamentary decision-making process, and the functions and methods of the representative bodies. Walking, biking, and rickshaw tours of Berlin often stop at the Gendarmenmarkt and Deutscher Dom.

When to get there

The Gendarmenmarkt is one of Berlin’s busiest squares, especially on summer and holiday weekends and during annual events. The most atmospheric time to visit is during the seasonal Christmas market or the open-air classical concerts held in the square through July and August. The Deutscher Dom museum is open from Tuesday through Sunday from 10am to 7pm (May–September) or 6pm (October–April).

The Deutscher Dom is one of three striking landmarks on the Gendarmenmarkt, one of the main squares in the heart of downtown Berlin. Opposite the Deutscher Dom is the strikingly similar Französischer Dom (French Church), also built in the 18th century and restored in the 1980s. The cathedral now houses the Huguenot Museum and affords magnificent views from its bell tower. Also on the square is the ornate 19th-century Konzerthaus Berlin (Berlin Concert Hall), one of the city’s most prestigious orchestral venues.
