  • Between the two cathedrals-French and German, the Gendarmenmarkt and practically in front of the main entrance to the concert hall building (the Berlin drama theatre) you can see a white monument to German poet Friedrich Schiller ( Schiller-Denkmal), made of marble. The Foundation for the monument had been prepared already in 1859, the year the monument was installed at this place only in 1869, but he stood up to the year 1936, when it was dismantled. To his rightful place as Friedrich Schiller returned to the 1988 year. For a small forged fence on the pedestal around the poet can be seen 4 women's sculptural shapes, this allegory-drama, poetry, philosophy and history.

It honors the poet, philosopher, and historian Friedrich Schiller, who is also regarded as one of the playwrights and most important lyricists of the German language. The set of statues was executed by Reinhold Begas, a prominent German sculptor of the 19th century. It is a registered historical monument.
