Berliner Dom

One of my favorite buildings in Berlin was the Berliner Dom (Berlin Cathedral). It was right across the river from our ultra-modern hotel and I like the juxtaposition of the old and the new.

Surprisingly the cathedral is only 100 years old, finished right at the turn of the century. It was bombed in World War II (what wasn’t?) and just finished a major reconstruction project in the late 90’s.

Unfortunately it was sunset when I paid it a visit and I wasn’t able to get inside for a tour. I made the most of the light, however, and took some of my favorite pictures of the trip.

Note: If the Radisson you are staying in has “SAS” attached to it you’re in for a treat. They’re nothing like the cookie-cutter hotels found in the US. In Berlin there’s a 100-foot tall fishtank in the center of the lobby, the Frankfurt Radisson is crazy circle and the Strand in Stockholm is like a castle. If you’re abroad book Radisson!
