  • 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 »
  • The Franzoesische Friedrichstadtkirche is still active and integrated within the French Dome. The visit is well worth it and if you want take photographs of the interior it's 0.50 Euro / ca. 0.60 USD....  more »
  • We set out to go and see the Gendarmenmarkt, a large square flanked at both ends by two similar-looking domed churches, the Französischer Dom and the Deutscher Dom. Since we are fairly French-minded, ...  more »

  • It is a nice place to visit. For classical music - well that depends. The walls don't resonate that well - too much concrete, I guess.
  • The building is beautiful, but I would not advise you to go up to the observation deck - the whole view is blocked by the fence.
  • This beautiful church is nearly identical to the one across from it on Gendarmenmarkt. It was built for French Huguenots to worship after they fled persecution in French and found refuge in Berlin.
  • 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.
  • Gloriously imposing, this French cathedral signifies Berlin's openness to those arriving from other countries. A very popular square.
