    The Gendarmenmarkt is one of the most beautiful squares in Berlin. It is dominated by three monumental buildings: the German Cathedral, the French Cathedral and the Konzerthaus (formerly the Schauspielhaus). The eventful history of the Gendarmenmarkt can be traced back to the 17th century - and each individual historical phase has left its mark to this day.

    The German and French Dome and in the middle of the concert hall are really a beautiful ensemble on the Gendarmenmarkt. You can climb the French Cathedral for a small fee and you have a great view of the city.

    One of the most beautiful places in Berlin, wonderful on early Sunday morning, when nothing is going on and you have the place almost to yourself.

    The Gendarmenmarkt is a square named after the cuirassier regiment Gens d'armes, which originally settled here, in Berlin's Mitte district of the district of the same name.
    Created when the city was expanded in 1688, it was destroyed in World War II and rebuilt in 1976-1993.
    On it are the playhouse by Karl Friedrich Schinkel, which is now used as a concert hall, as well as the German and French Cathedrals by Carl von Gontard.
    The Gendarmenmarkt is known as "Berlin's most beautiful square".

    My recommendations:
    1. The German Cathedral accommodates i.a. the exhibition of the German Bundestag. The free guided tour is also highly recommended.
    2. The French Cathedral houses the Huguenot Museum and the 360-degree panorama from the viewing platform offers a great view of the city's most important sights: Berlin Cathedral, Alexander Tower, Humboldt Forum, Red City Hall, Reichstag, Charité, etc.
    3. Guided tours (45 minutes, 3 euros per person) are also offered in the concert hall.
    4. Visit to the Rausch Schokoladenhaus / CHOCOLATE CAFÉ
