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

Französischer Dom is one of two similar churches at Gendarmenmarkt along with Deutscher Dom. It is located at the northern end of the square and is an attractive building to see in Berlin. This church was built by Louis Cayart and Abraham Quesney (1701-1705) and...More

The Franzoesische Friedrichstadtkirche is still active and integrated within the French Dome. The visit is well worth it and if you want take photographs of the interior it's 0.50 Euro / ca. 0.60 USD. Otherwise it's free, when we visited in April 2016. Since we...More

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.

Awesome looking buildings and an amazing Christmas Market that is highly recommended, especially in the evening as a place to eat and drink -

The original church has been destroyed during the second world war. It was renovated 30 years ago. It is used today for conventions by the Evangelical Church in Germany. The outside is interesting, but the inside is not.

Don't bother with the stairs to the top or the Hugenot Museum, just step inside the side entrance and feel at peace. It is white, full of light and quite lovely. Then you can go outside and sit at the cafe here and relax. The...More

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
