Your Recital in Berlin's Largest Protestant Church

The Cathedral of Berlin (German: Berliner Dom), completed in 1905, is Berlin’s largest and most important Protestant church as well as the tomb of the Prussian Hohenzollern dynasty.

This outstanding high-renaissance baroque monument has linked the Hohenzollerns to German Protestantism for centuries and undergone renewed phases of architectural renovation since the Middle Ages.
First built in 1465 as a parish church on the Spree River it was only finally completed in 1905 under the last German Kaiser -Wilhelm II. Damaged during the Second World War it remained closed and finally reopened after restoration in 1993.

Reaching out well beyond the borders of the parish and of Berlin, the cathedral attracts thousands of visitors, year after year, from Germany and abroad. It is located close to the famous Museum Island borough.                                            

The Mountain View Presbyterian Church Choir is going to have a recital at this stunning cathedral on Wednesday, June 11, 2014 at 11:30 am.
