Unfortunately the church itself wasn't open when I visited so I had to be content with seeing it from the outside. Nevertheless, it's an attractive looking building which looks great in photos. The Deutscher Dom at the other end of the square looks similar, but...More

Berlin's most beautiful square namely Gendarmenmarkt is graced with two beautiful churches, Deutscher Dom and Französischer Dom. In German the word Dom actually translates as cathedral but in the case of Französischer Dom it denotes the tower . The actual tower is not the church...More

The visit to the Church was lovely. We had a nice talk walking around and to learn about this beautiful piece of art. It’s within walking distance from Checkpoint Charlie. There are also bars here so you can sit back and enjoy this magnificent architecture.

This is a lovely church, located in the Gendarmen square, in the city center. The church features a lovely exterior and a similarly lovely interior, with the organ excelling in particular.

Built between 1701 and 1705 for the French Huguenots seeking asylum in Mark Brandenburg. The austere interior is open for services on Sundays including use of the Baroque organ. There is a tower which one can climb

We set out to go and see the Gendarmenmarkt, a large square flanked at both ends by two similar-looking domed churches, the Französischer Dom and the Deutscher Dom. Since we are fairly French-minded, we decided to visit the French church. We discovered that we could...More

If you are in the area, visit the church which faces Charlottenstrasse (not the dom) during their brief, 15-minute "Organ Meditation" from Tuesday to Friday 12:30 PM.

This is a nice relatively recent structure that fits well the square. Not worth going inside or climbing on the top because the view is quite modest. The area around is quite nice, with Xmas marked and many good bars and restaurants.

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
