Top choice Square

in Historic Mitte

This graceful square is bookended by the domed German and French cathedrals and punctuated by a grandly porticoed concert hall, the Konzerthaus. It was named for the Gens d’Armes, an 18th-century Prussian regiment consisting of French Huguenot refugees.

The area shows Berlin at its ritziest, dappled with luxury hotels, fancy restaurants and bars.
