We attended the 10:00 Sunday Mass. (Catholic Church) The choir was present. The music was amazing!! Because of the dome the acoustics were impressive. The church is simple but beautiful.

like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum
Island. The central location makes this one of the
city's most expensive places to live. It is here the
