“Amazing piazza in Berlin”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2012

Have a wander round the Gendarmenmarkt. Two stunning cathedrals and a Koncerthaus. Very impressive. Some nice shops too including the Ampelmann shop which is great. Easy to get too, this place proviudes a really interesting perspective on Berlin.

So pretty- Christmas Market lovely. My favourite thing about Gendarmenmarkt- Fassbender und Rausch. Go and explore this amazing chocolate shop and make sure you go upstairs to the cafe and have a hot chocolate!

“a great place to be”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 February 2012

We have been invited to the Cinema for peace - gala at the Konzerthaus at the Gendarmenmarkt. It was a great party but it was also a great experience to walk on this great place...it is totally different to the potsdamer platz, where we stayed all day...if you come to Berlin, you have to see this place.

“monumental”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 February 2012

Surrounded by 2 cathedrals and the concert hall, this is one of the most authentic looking places of Berlin, and definitely worth a visit. Starting from here, going east towards the city hall, and staying south of Unter den Linden (the main boulevard), you'll find some of the smaller and cosier shops, pubs, etc...
