Create an itinerary including Gendarmenmarkt
Regarded as one of the country's most elegant squares, Gendarmenmarkt is dominated by two domed cathedrals and the city's renowned concert hall. The square was created in the 17th century, then massively reconstructed and expanded in 1773 by architect Georg Christian Unger. This public space was named after an 18th-century regiment consisting of French Huguenot immigrants, whose story you can explore at the museum inside the imposing French cathedral. Though many of the historic structures were damaged or destroyed during World War II, the buildings have since been fully restored. Be sure to climb the cathedrals' towers for views of the historic parts of the city.

  • I visited here for the Christmas Market whilst in Berlin. There was a lot to see and to buy. Nice to experience a German Christmas Market and drink mulled wine whilst walking around

  • This is a very historical part of central Berlin, and a large courtyard. It is undergoing some construction.

  • This is one of my favorite Christmas market in Berlin and in Germany. I like the whole set up and decoration of the stalls. There is also live music performance which I enjoyed very much. Because of Covid they asked for your vaccination pass. Also prepare one euro for the entry. Overall it was an awesome experience
  • This is a very nice square with some beautiful, big buildings like the concert hall, churches... It is also a nice place to come and sit on a bench. Or with children because there is a lot of place for them to safely run around.
