The Dome as Ornament

Berlin Cathedral dome

Since the start of my tours, I have only had the opportunity to see cathedrals of the Gothic genre. So you can imagine my delight as I made my way to the Berlin Cathedral. Camera in hand without a care in the world, I had the mien of a kid going to a candy store. I must confess, more than anything I have come to see, the cathedral dome remains a priority. One is often overtaken by a concoction of emotions as one looks straight up at the epicentre of a finely crafted dome and, needless to say, in Berlin, I was not disappointed.
