St. Mary's Church, Berlin

4.1
One of Berlin's oldest churches, St. Mary's Church represents a Protestant cathedral with foundations dating back to the 13th century. Though most of the current structure was largely built in the 19th century and post-war period, the site still retains several centuries of history. Located near the modern, crowded Alexanderplatz, the building holds a great deal of architectural and religious significance. Step inside to see the striking interior and works of art, including the famous, and very large, medieval fresco of The Dance of Death. Make St. Mary's Church a centerpiece of your Berlin vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Berlin route planner.

  • It is a nice place. To be here needs enough time to at least learn and read through the history. The church has also nice things to see inside.even the walls inside looks good and taken cared of. As of now,as per observation, they're doing some maintenance in and out of the building as part of taking care of this historical site.
  • It's just breath taking. It was under some maintenance that's why I dont give the full 5 star. I hope i can revisit it and see it on it's full shine.
