I was wondering, where was the main market square in Berlin?

Berlin was, and still is a "bipolar" city. By the start of the 20th century Potsdamer Platz and Leipziger Platz together with Alexanderplatz were among the most trafficed ones. In older times the area around Berliner Dom and Stadtschloss probably held some significane. After Berlin was split in two after WWII Alexanderplatz emerged as the main square and downtonw in East-Berlin while Breitscheidplatz (square around Kaiser Wilhelm Gedächtniskirche) was the main square in west and the downtown together with Ku'damm.

Did Berlin ever have an "Alter Markt" type square? Would that be Gendarmenmarkt?

They are new, but designed to match the former structures. A great job.

Because Berlin had a significant number of unique neighborhoods, there were many wonderful squares that were "main" squares for the local areas. The largest trafficed areas were often transportation hubs. The somewhat smaller squares were more important in terms of places for the people to shop for their daily needs and open space for the locals to gather.

Gendarmenmarkt could hold that title, but so might many others such as the Lustgarten and Nikolaiviertel

Besides eye-popping architecture, German cities had masterful urban planning.

Yes, the planning was well intended, thoughtful, and worked. Transportation hubs and the many Platz areas were strategically placed to afford access and usability. Many platz were oriented also on a monumental building, often a church, around which a community flourished.
