Charming little tree-lined square and church in the shadow of Deutsche Bank, worth a short stroll from Bebelplatz on the way up Under den Linten to Brandenburg

bars, restaurants, some shops. The shops were more tourist traps than nice shops. When walking away from Gendarmenmarkt, you walk into the Galeries Lafayettes. Doing Paris in Berlin!

This is a somewhat hidden beautiful square in the centre of Berlin. The square was damaged heavily by bombing, but restored precisely by the DDR. It's perfect in the summer for sitting out and having a drink with the two cathedrals and the general ambiance. Some great restaurants and bars around the perimeter, it's the perfect place to sit back... More

This is a beautiful place to just sit down and relax, have a meal or a drink and watch the world go by. Beautiful buildings all around.

Maybe go around sunset for an apero in one of the surrounding winebars. The scenery is just stunning. Or bring your own sandwich but stay at least 1/2 hour, to take it all in.

This was my first visit to a Northern European Christmas market, and it did not disappoint! It was festive and so much fun, with easy access to food and drinks despite the crowds. Live music and entertainment were fun, and the shopping was great. My only suggestion would be to try not to visit on a weekend evening - it... More

This is the square to visit! Very pretty. We sat in the square for some time, watching passersby and enjoying the sunshine we were lucky enough to get. Be careful of young people approaching you with clipboards, trying to get your signature and money. It's all a scam. Other than that, a beautiful place to sit with quite a few... More
