Highlights of the guided tour are the Marble Hall, the Little Gallery, the Library and the Concert Room of Frederick the Great.



[CANCELLED] Berlin Cathedral - Guided Tour (in English) and organ recital

The Cathedral of Berlin, built in the time of emperor Wilhelm II, is the largest church in the city, and serves as a center for the Protestant church of Germany. The Hohenzollern Crypt underneath the cathedral is the most important dynastic sepulchre in Germany. The large organ of the Cathedral of Berlin, built by Wilhelm Sauer from Frankfurt on the Oder, was built at the same time as the building itself. When it was dedicated in 1905, the organ was the largest in Germany.

This excursion is cancelled.
