  Gendarmenmarkt, Berlin
From Friedrichstrasse it is only a few minutes' walk southwards to Gendarmenmarkt, one of Berlin's most beautiful and harmonious squares.
The square was laid out in the 17th C. and first named the Esplanade, then Lindenmarkt, Mittelstädtischer or Friedrichstädtischer Markt and finally Gendarmenmarkt, because a regiment of Gendarmerie had their guard-house and stables here from 1736-82.
Having suffered considerable damage in the Second World War, most of it was rebuilt in its original form during the GDR period.

"Gendarmenmarkt" was once nothing more than simple meadows and farmland abutting the original city walls of Berlin, eventually gaining its name from the Regiment of the "Military King" Friedrich Wilhelms the First, who had his stables – the "Gens d’armes" – here in 18th Century.
In 1821 the "Schauspielhaus" (Theatre House) was built following the designs of Schinkel, and at the end of the 19th Century, in the course of the development of Freiderichstrasse, the Gendarmenmarkt became a business and administrative centre.
Since 1991 the square has been rebuilt following historical models, and its present appearance is shaped by residential and administrative buildings housing both shops and restaurants.
