The Gendarmenmarkt is a square in Berlin and the site of an architectural ensemble including the Konzerthaus (concert hall) and the French and German Churches.
Gendarmenmarkt. The most beautiful square in Berlin
In the centre of the square stands a monumental statue of Germany’s renowned poet Friedrich Schiller. During World War II, most of the buildings were badly damaged or destroyed. Today all of them have been restored.
Once, soldiers matched here, but today Berliners and tourists stroll across the square. It’s said to be the most beautiful public square in Berlin, and perhaps the most beautiful north of the Alps.
