Berlin Gendarmes Market


"Most beautiful square in Berlin"

The Gendarmenmarkt is considered the “most beautiful square in Berlin”. It is surrounded by beautiful historic buildings of the highest order. It is home to the Schauspielhaus, now used as a concert hall, as well as the German and French cathedrals. A stroll through the lively square gives visitors a sense of Berlin’s history. The Gendarmenmarkt was built in 1688 as part of the Friedrichstadt (Frederick City), which was built by Elector Frederick III, later King Frederick I of Prussia. The square and its buildings were destroyed in the Second World War and rebuilt between 1976 and 1993.
