Constructed around AD 310 as Constantine’s throne hall, the brick-built Konstantin Basilika (Aula Palatina) is now a typically austere Protestant church. Its dimensions (67m long and 36m high) are truly mind-blowing considering that it was built by the Romans. A new organ, with 87 registers and 6500 pipes, is being installed and should be ready in 2014.
