Berlin Cathedral (German: Berliner Dom) is the short name for the Evangelical (i.e. Protestant) Supreme Parish and Collegiate Church (German: Oberpfarr- und Domkirche) in Berlin, Germany. It is located on Museum Island in the Mitte borough. The current building was finished in 1905 and is a main work of Historicist architecture of the “Kaiserzeit”.
The Berlin Cathedral had never been a cathedral in the actual sense of that term since it has never been the seat of a bishop. The Supreme Parish and Cathedral Church in 1945 was severely damaged after the Soviet conquest of Berlin.
Berliner Dom was the royal church of the Prussian monarchy in Germany.
