I have been partially sharing images from Berlin, Germany in my other sites. As of now, I can’t still fully describe Berlin but I can only say one thing, for me, it is the city of almost everything. I can compare it to other European capital cities like Paris and London. Each cities has each uniqueness and all of them are beautiful for me.
I was overwhelmed when I saw and experienced Germany’s capital city. I believed with what my friend from Berlin told me that visiting and seeing everything in this city takes a lot of time. A three-day visit is not enough. You probably need around three weeks to see everything. Would it mean that I will be visiting this city in the near future again? I believed, yes!
I am sharing one of the most beautiful squares I had seen in Europe. This is the Gendarmenmarkt in Berlin. This is quite a perfect setting with those two famous and almost similarly designed cathedrals, the Französischer Dom (French Cathedral) and the German Cathedral. Right in the middle of this neoclassical square is the Concert Hall, called in German as the Konzerthaus which is the home of the Berlin Symphony Orchestra. I should watch and witness an opera in my next visit to Berlin. What do you think guys?
The Konzerthaus Berlin is the most recent building on the Gendarmenmarkt. It was built by Karl Friedrich Schinkel in 1821 as the Schauspielhaus. It was based on the ruins of the National Theatre, which was destroyed by fire in 1817.

The famous Christmas Market in Berlin is held annually in this square.
