I had not planned to visit the Cathedral, it was not highlighted in my Eyewitness Travel Top 10 (the book I treat as my bible in every city we visit - they never let me down) as special but we were there and there was no queue so we stepped inside. We paid €5 each to go in (reduced from €7 because of our Welcome card travel pass)
I'm so glad we did.
It was quite amazing, almost as impressive as the Sacré-Cœur in an architectural way, but not in the spiritual.
I felt like Alice in Wonderland in a corridor of locked doors.
I like the way the Germans allow 'tourist' happenings in Churches in a way the French do not.
Especially being as there was no one else to be seen.
It was very worth the climb, looking down on the Altes Museum where Hitler gave speeches and the crowds of Third Reich supporters gathered.
The walk down was a bit perturbing
