Religion and Ideology

How can I practise my religion in Berlin?

Every person has the right to choose a religion or ideology – no religion or ideology is above the law of the state. You can change it, live by it or live without a religion. Every person has the right to believe what she or he considers right. There is no state religion. Religion is a private matter, even if religious and ideological communities help shape public and social life.

However: the laws of the state take precedence over religious rules.

The website of the senate commissioner for Churches, religious and ideological communities offers you further information: here, you can also find a list of the religious and ideological communities in Berlin.
