  • Französischer Dom is one of two similar churches at Gendarmenmarkt along with Deutscher Dom. It is located at the northern end of the square and is an attractive building to see in Berlin. This church...  more »
  • Symbol of the reformation in Germany and national tolerance. Standing on one of the main squares of the city the Gendarmenmarkt. It is interesting that not once during its history of Prussia, and later Germany, opened its doors for migrants. Jews, Turks in the 20 century, the Syrians in the 21st and in 17 century French Huguenots found here a new home. Indeed the latest this temple was built. From architectural-surprisingly wrong proportions of domes. Just apparently architect was never in Rome. May by'' on this and remembered.

  • This is the Französischer Dom, which essentially means The French Cathedral in German. Now, why would there be a French church in a German capital? This is where taking a walking tour is brilliant. Running through a quick history of Prussian, we know that this was built by Frederick II as an admiration of French culture. His father was known as the Soldier-King, which amassed a great Prussian army only to never had used them. Frederick on the other hand, loved culture and the arts but turned out to be the most formidable conqueror and warrior, expanding Prussia’s territory and power. He was dubbed Frederick the Great and Prussia under Frederick is often described as "not a state in possession of an army, but an army in possession of a state." The French Cathedral is located in the beautiful Gendarmenmarkt square which was expanded and made the seat of high culture by Frederick the Great. On this square are two major cathedrals, Französischer and Deutscher Dom as well as Konzerthaus Berlin. That makes this square, one of the prettiest square in Berlin.
  • Beautiful church, inside and out. A lovely place to visit and you can see it from the patio of Augustiner am Gendarmenmarkt!
  • Gloriously imposing, this French cathedral signifies Berlin's openness to those arriving from other countries. A very popular square.
  • You can go up by stairs (250 steps). They don't have elevator. You will have a nice view of Berlin from tower. If you like to see the church too you need to go out and, turn right and walk to main entrance. For tower you need to but ticket.
  • A beautiful church, both externally and internally. but I recommend to visit it from the inside.
