I spent a few days in Berlin and one of the first stops I made was at the Berliner Dom, or Berlin Cathedral. It was partially closed due to a service but I was still allowed into the crypt down below. This crypt houses the remains of many of the Hohenzollern family. It’s quite interesting and surprisingly small.
