The Berlin Cathedral offers a great variety of concerts, from choir music to Early Music and, of course, organ concerts.The cathedral's classical programme presents performances by renowned local, national and international artists.

The Berliner Dom (Berlin Cathedral) is located on the historic 'Museum Island' and was rebuilt in 1905. It has a richly decorated interior and the magnificent Sauer organ, which was built at the same time as the cathedral. Today, the Sauer organ is the largest organ of the "late Romantic" period.
The programme offers excellent performances of classical music in the incomparable atmosphere of one of Europe's most impressive basilica cathedrals.
