A square with the stunning concert hall and the Berlin and French cathedral. It is a wide space and good for meeting and people watching.

The square itself has three beautiful examples of old buildings, two churches and an Opera House, all of which are interesting and unique. A very relaxing area with all the modern buildings just across the road. The street lights are also well worth looking at.

Having experienced the Christmas markets in Nuernberg and Munich, which I love, our entire family fell in love with this market in Berlin. Great artisan foods, traditional Christmas items (arts and crafts), Christmas food specialties and lots of different tents ( all wonderful decorated inside and out - closed walls with forced air - so comfy ) offering different types...

We came across the Christmas Market here quite by chance, whilst 'wandering' through some of the back streets of Berlin. Set between the Franzosischer Dom and the Deuttscher Dom, two almost idential looking churches, the main focus of this market is on food but in a very upmarket sort of way in terms of Christmas Markets. As well of the... More

The buildings are beautiful and so impressive. You can see these well from the bus tour if you take the traditional red route. The Gendarmenmarkt was near our hotel and we cut through here to get to Alexanderplatz. There's shops and restaurants around the area so you won't be stuck for a drink or some food. We had pizza and... More

A beautiful Christmas Market with interesting stalls. As well as the typical wursts and biers, the market also features fashionable clothes, tiles, pottery and wood crafts. There were performances on the mini stage and entertainers going around the market and randomly burst into song and dance.

Staying in Mitte

Neighborhood Profile
Mitte
The center of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighborhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
