About Berlin Cathedral

Located on the eastern side of the Museum Island in the city of Berlin, the Berlin Cathedral is backed by the River Spree, which was once the church of the Hohenzollern royal family, whose family members were buried in the basement. The Berlin Cathedral was destroyed in World War II, and the repair work continues to this day, but it is still Berlin's eye-catching landmark, known as the "Museum Island entrance". The three baroque domes are extraordinary, and the four-story building facing the Spree River is decorated in a Baroque palace style, with a splendid style; the bell tower on the west side is still in service, the bells of prayer are long and long; the stairs can be climbed over the cathedral. Admire the stunning views of downtown Berlin from the top.

    It was planned to leave at 7:00 this morning at 7:40, but it was not until 7:40. It was nearly 8:30 when we left. We had breakfast with hot cocoa wrapped in horns at the railway station, and then we set off to the core of East Berlin. Walking along the eastern Gallery of the Berlin Wall, photographing the city hall, the TV tower and the world clock in Alexandria Square. I wanted to see the periphery of Museum Island (closed on Monday), but I got lost several times. When you walk to the Berlin Cathedral, you only feel that the green dome is ingenious, and when you enter the interior of the cathedral, you feel shocked. At 12:00 noon, after listening to the outdoor bells, it is also worth playing the organ in the church, wind gyration, holy interior, can not help but make people awe-inspiring. On the first floor of the church, it corresponds to mosaic dome interior decoration, murals, altars and candlesticks in turn. On the second floor of the exhibition hall, we can see the evolution of the cathedral's appearance since it was built. On the third floor and above, we can climb the top of the cathedral by spiral stairs all the way. The narrow stairs are steep and breathless. From the dome to the basement on foot, dozens of coffins were seen. Time was pressing and fear was in my heart. I dared not take pictures and did not stay for a long time.

    Berlin Cathedral is very worthwhile to visit, although admission is required, but I personally feel that this 7.5 Euro (as if, remember not quite clear...) The extraordinary value of the ticket flowers In the speech, let all stand up what (a word can not understand ), and the organ playing very good to listen to! ___________ Visits from floor to floor can climb up to the top and overlook the scenery of Berlin. If you are interested, you can buy some postcards of the Berlin Cathedral as a souvenir.

    Deutscher Dom, Berlin Cathedral, also known as Berliner Dom in English, is the largest church in Berlin and once the royal court church. It is also one of the most important church buildings in Germany and one of the Protestant church centers in Germany. The church is built in Baroque and Italian Renaissance heyday style, with dozens of royal members buried in the basement mausoleum. It was magnificent to see it in person, and of course there were black traces of war being burnt down on the top of the church. Overhaul is under way here. There are many machines. Not accessible. There are many carriages passing by here. There is a representative office in Taipei, Germany, near the street of Markgrafen. br / Deutscher Dom is located in Gendarmenmarkt, where there are also Schauspielhaus, Franzosischer Dom and a few people in front of the French Cathedral.

    Berlin Cathedral is a Renaissance style cathedral. The three prominent domes clearly illustrate this feature. Unlike the spire roof of Gothic Cathedral, the dome of Berlin Cathedral will give the original high church a sense of roundness and richness visually. From the architectural appearance, it imitates St. Peter's Cathedral in Rome and has its own distinct characteristics. The vault of the church is not just a simple imitation of St. Peter's Cathedral in Rome. It makes the interior of the church bright and spacious, which contrasts sharply with the gloomy and solemn appearance of the church. Because the relationship between Berlin Cathedral and Gothic Cathedral, which used to be the exclusive church for the Royal family, is different from those Gothic churches with beautiful appearance and simple interior decoration, the interior of Berlin Cathedral is extremely gorgeous and even to the extent of ostentation. Its interior is brilliant, decorated with complex lines of pillars and exquisite murals, and even the pillars are gilded. Its interior was designed by the designer Julius Raschdorff at the same time.

    The history of Berlin Cathedral can be traced back to the 15th century. The Baroque Cathedral was originally designed by John Baumann. In the 19th century, the Hohensolen Royal Family considered that the Cathedral as the royal court was too crude for their Berlin Palace. At the request of King William IV, it began to build a magnificent cathedral, redesigned by Ulius Rushdorf and added luxurious and brilliant literature and art. Renaissance element. Unfortunately, it was badly damaged in World War II until the restoration was completed in 1993 after the reunification of Germany and Germany. Although today's Berlin Cathedral is magnificent and magnificent, it is said that compared with the cathedral before it was destroyed, it has been simplified a lot. Powerful momentum poured out, and the 70-meter-high dome stopped everyone who entered the cathedral and looked up. When the sun shines, the pigeon represents the Holy Spirit, and the feeling of reverence arises spontaneously. The mosaic of the dome depicts the story of the Eight Blessings of Mountaineering in the Bible. Each dome mural is 39 square meters in size, and the whole mosaic is more than 500,000 pieces, including more than 2,000 mosaics with different shades of color. Along the middle passage to the altar, Han Baiyu altar, agate pillars and gilded pillars of the fence, the whole altar set off brilliant gold. Painted murals around the altar depict the three most sacred moments of Christianity - "the birth of Jesus, the crucifixion of Jesus and the resurrection of Jesus. On the left side of the altar is an oak platform. The delicate sculptors are amazing. The dark coffee color is decorated with gold, which gives a feeling of heavy and low-key luxury. Like all churches, Berlin Cathedral has a huge organ. This pipe organ with 7269 pipes undoubtedly won the crown of the largest existing pipe organ in Germany.

    Berlin Cathedral, the most luxurious Christian Church in Germany. Germany was the birthplace of religious reform. In the Middle Ages, Catholicism ruled absurdly and sold "atonement rolls" to the public for huge profits. German devout monk Martin Luther criticized the Catholic practice boldly, initiated religious reform, and translated the first German Bible, correcting people's understanding of faith. From then on, Christian Protestantism, what the Chinese call Christianity, broke up. After the conversion of Germany to Christianity, the church was built, which was intended to stand alongside St. Peter's Church in the Vatican, the Catholic center, and its luxury is evident.
