Large historic square with stunning buildings
Jul 2021
The square was built at the end of the 17th century. It is one of the most beautiful squares in Berlin.

The three monumental buildings Deutscher Dom, Konzerthaus, and Französischer Dom beautifully frame the square.

The square is also known for its Christmas market. The decorated wooden booths offer traditional handicraft items and delicious Christmas specialties.

Two cathedrals look the same
Jul 2021 • Friends
I visited this place because some blogs said it would be one of the prettiest places of Berlin. Honestly I disagree but it might be because there is a lot of construction work going on. There are two cathedrals which look the same on this square which is interesting. Pity about all the construction!

Large Square
Jul 2020
Lots of nice buildings & a lovely large square but I found it largely the same as it was when we first visited, in 1991; quite soulless!

History meets great architecture!

The whole GENDARMENMARKT is a great place to watch and dream. Finest architecture, great surroundings and fine restaurants, all is there! In summertime music and open markets, in wintertime a great Christmas market!

Large open square with the imposing Concert House in the middle. Very pleasant to walk round or enjoy one of the cafes.

Beautiful square
Sep 2020
Probably the nicest square in Berlin. With the 2 cathedrals, either side of the Konzerthaus, it is perfect for a relaxing stroll, or stopping at one of the cafes and bars, for a cold drink on a warm day. Would love to come back when the Christmas market is on as I have been told it looks stunning.

The most beautiful square in Berlin

Scenic, tranquil, and historic, what more could you need. Lots of bars and restaurants around - one of our favourite areas in the city.

The Gendarmenmarkt with its Churches and the Theater is also a good photo stop. Best photos are early morning or late night when illuminated
