  • Topsi

    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.

  • 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

  • Nice place, but quite a construction site at the moment. It will probably stay that way for a while longer.

  • The Gendarmenmarkt is currently under construction. The whole place is behind a construction fence and it will probably be at least a year or more before the place will be a sight to behold again!
