One of the sightseeing spots you should not miss. Just spend some minutes on the open place right in front to get an impression of the buildings and its architecture.

This may be the most beautiful square in Berlin. At opposite ends stand two matching churches, and between them stands the large Konzerthaus. A very photogenic location. The Hop-on, Hop-off tour bus stops here.
