Gendarmenmarkt by Night – Konzerthaus and French Dome

Berlin Gendarmenmarkt by Night

This picture of Gerndarmenmarkt was taken on a beautiful summer night – or late evening. We were basically rushing to a gallery opening at Lindenstrasse – so the photo is a bit wonky. But anyways – i think it caught the moment quite well. It was warm and calm and people were just hanging out on the street, on squares – and even on Gendarmenmarkt in Berlin Mitte.For me this was quite a special occasion.

On the left you can see the Berlin Konzerthaus (“Concert House”) and on the right you see the Französischer Dom (“French Dome”).

In German the French Cathedral is called Französischer Dom – the term is German for “French Cathedral”, but in this case (as also in the case of the Berlin Dome and the German Dome) the term refers to the French word for English “dome” and not to a cathedral. Neither church on Gendarmenmarkt was ever the church of a bishop.
