The Gendarmenmarkt in Berlin is a public square with three distinctive buildings on site: the French Cathedral, the German Cathedral, and the Konzerthaus. Undoubtedly one of Berlin’s fanciest squares. It was created in 1688 and served as a place for political events. Situated directly in front of Konzerthaus in the centre of the square is the Monument to Friedrich Schiller . This monument was created by German sculptor Reinhold Begas and unveiled in 1871.

Due to its destruction in the Second World War, the Gendarmenmarkt in Berlin was renamed for a short time in “Square of the Academy” but ultimately it was decided to rename it again in Gendarmenmarkt. The Concert Hall (Konzerthaus) was build in the middle of the square by Karl Friedrich Schinkel one of Germany’s famous architects during the early 19th century.

The grand structures are impressive all year round but make shure to come back for the annual Christmas market, it is more than worth it for the special location and lively atmosphere.

The pictures show the Gendarmenmarkt in Berlin with the annual Christmas market (Weihnachtszauber), Deutscher Dom (German Church) and the Konzerthaus (concert hall), the monumental statue of Germany’s renowned poet Friedrich Schiller and the Französicher Dom (French Church).
