As well s the Gendarmenmarkt itself with it's beautiful old buildings there are a lot of higher class restaurants around this area which may appeal to foody tourists. Good choice, good wine and good service in the 2 we tried out.

Just to stroll through this square is interesting - the atmosphere, the architecture - just off one the main streets in Berlin. Lots of nice cafes and restaurants nearby to. Soak up the atmosphere!

The centre 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
