Roman Catholic Cathedral located on the Bebelplatz. It is the seat of the archbishop of Berlin. Nice simple interior including an impressive Organ. Hoarding obscures a lot of the exterior views of the church.

St Hedwig’s Cathedral which is the Catholic church built by King Frederick II. The church was built after the reformation and is modelled after the Pantheon in Rome. I guess everyone wanted a Pantheon in their city.
