Most of the Dom is Gothic and dates from the 14th and 15th centuries, but the lower parts of its huge towers are Romanesque and belonged to a church built on this site for Bishop Boniface in 742. On April 3, 1507, Martin Luther was ordained a priest in Mariensdom (see Luther in Erfurt and The Luther Trail).
Cologne Cathedral was started in 1248, but too more than 600 years to build. Inside, there is a the shrine of the Three Magi (the Three Wise Men) who came to Cologne in 1164. The architecture is Gothic and Neo-Gothic, because of the different inspirations from all of the years it took to build.
The Berliner Dom in Berlin, Germany, is an impressive basilica known as the "Protestant St. Peter's." The present Baroque structure dates only from 1905, but stands on the site of several earlier structures. Berlin's cathedral is not a must-see, but it is certainly worth a look if time allows.
