Catholic or Protestant? In English or in German?

There should be a Catholic service at St Hedwig's Cathedral on Bebelplatz, not far from your hotel. The French and German churches on Gendarmenmarkt would be even closer but I'm unsure of the denomination and if they have regular services.

Protestant. English, but German would be ok also. Just looking for a great traditional service to go to since we are celebrating Christmas in Germany.

Darren, they are both Protestant. The French one also has a museum about Huguenots in Berlin

That was my suspicion, Lynda, but didn't want to say it :-)

Here’s more on the Berliner Dom - Berlin Cathedral - on the Museum Island, whose history dates back to 1451. It has a magnificent pipe organ. https:/…Berlin_Cathedral

Its Christmas Eve services are legendary and a festive concert is scheduled for December 25th.
