I really love Brandenburg Gate a lot, as well as the church you've visited! Looks really fantastic that I want to visit Berlin soon... Perhaps not only to see the sights, but to dance the nights away! Remarkable pics again!

Gendarmenmarkt looks fantastic! I suspect that there was a concert or event that took place in the plaza (with the stages, cables, and other sound equipment), but looking at your related photos, it made me wonder: did you visit a museum, a government building, a library, or something else because the interiors don't seem to be quite obvious... Great shots, mate!

Thanks mate! They were preparing for a concert, but I didn't see it. The interior is from French Church (Französiche Friedrichstadtkirche), opposite the German Church.

Next part will be Charlottenburg!

Hmmm, a French Church versus a German Church? What's the difference between the two?

The French Cathedral was built 1701 to 1705 by/for the French Huguenot refugees, that had to leave France. Fun fact: Back in that time 25% of the population of Berlin were actually French Huguenots.
The German Cathedral was built 1701 to 1708 as an almost exact copy for the German Protestant community on the opposite side of the square, as the Baroque favored symmetry.

Now that's something I truly want to explore when I visit Berlin. So what are the key differences, in terms of design, to distinguish the French Church from the German Church, since you've opened up the principle of symmetry?

Each of the churches consist of two buildings: The actual church building and then those temple-like structures with the domed towers. The temple-like structures are exactly the same, but the churches do differ significantly:

Now I can truly spot the differences just by looking at the roofing, as well as the doorways. Thanks for introducing me further into the German and French churches in Berlin: both look spectacular indeed!

Thanks! Yes, it looks incredible! It is the town hall of the Charlottenburg borough, formerly an independent town.
