About the French CathedralThe French Cathedral (Französischer Dom) in Gendarmenmarkt Square is an inactive Protestant church that is currently inactive. It was established between the years 1705-1701, for the Huguenot community of Berlin. The Huguenots were French Protestants - Calvinists, fleeing from their country and found refuge in Prussia, at the beginning of the 18th century.
During World War II, the cathedral was destroyed and was rebuilt only in the 1980’s.
A great advantage of the cathedral is the magnificent observation from its upper section, to reach it one must climb 524 steps. Feel free to buy you a good bottle of wine and enjoy the breathtaking view!
TipsIt is not as tall as the nearby TV tower, but the French Cathedral can is a great substitute if lines for the TV tower are too long.
