One of the most beautiful squares in Berlin. The main architectural ensemble consists of three buildings: the German and French cathedrals and a concert hall located in the middle. All three buildings are maintained in the tones of a strict classical style. In December, a Christmas tree is installed on the Gendarmenmarkt and the fair starts. Festive lighting is lit on the facades of the cathedrals and the Concert Hall.
In both my trips to Berlin I have visited here, once to just say I went here and a second trip to understand the significance of this region of the city and what takes place here throughout the year (e.g. Christmas festival in winter)

Perhaps the most beautiful square in Berlin. It is worth visiting. Of course, at this time they are renovating the buildings and the surrounding area, so you don't have a good picture at the moment!
It has a 1 euro entrance fee, but its quite good to be here to taste different wines and local foods. Many stores are widely selling random stuffs like souvenirs and home decorations. A good place to hang out after strolling around the centre.

An open square with three historical monuments. The main in center houses a museum also. Very popular among locals and tourists. I have passed through this place several time and am always fascinated by the shear magic of this place.
I loved it here. I spent the day sitting on the steps, drinking coffee, having lunch, watching people walk by, and sketching. Great place to relax and take in a bit of he city.

A very nice square, one of the better ones in Berlin I think.
Nice square with some cute coffee shops. Lively during the day but pretty dead in the evening.
Its good place to visit, but there is no events to do.
One of the most beautiful - if not the most beautiful - squares in Berlin. I love taking my pictures there every time I have the time. The coffes around it are simply great.
One of my favourite sites in Berlin. If you stand in the middle of the square facing the Concert Hall, you can see the German Church to the left and the French Church to your right. There are numerous restaurants and bars in the viconity.
Beautiful. A bit dead at night, a little touristy in summer. The Schiller memorial should have been a fountain. If you enjoy classical music as well as modern classic - without the fuzz opera tends to earn - the Konzerthaus is definitely a must.
