The German Cathedral is the southernmost of the twin churches on the Gendarmenmarkt square. Although it looks like a church from the outside, the inside is a multi-level museum on the history of German parliament. The main entrance has steps but you can go to the south (left) side of the building, press the button, and a staff member will unlock the door that you will need to pull open. An elevator can get you to all levels of the building except for the reception desk to pick up an English audioguide.
