Französischer Dom (French Cathedral) is located in the center of Berlin, on the nothern side of Gendarmenmarkt, near Französische Straße.
It was built in the XVII Century as a temple for the french Hugenots, a religious sect persecuted in their homeland by the inquisition for heresy.
As balance, a German Cathedral (Deutscher Dom), was built on the other side of Gendarmenmarkt.
The church was partly destroyed during World War II, and not fully restored until 1980’s.
Today, visitors can climb up the tower stairs to admire a beautiful panorama of Berlin…
…as well as the tower of Französischer Dom itself, with Glockenspiel (playing clock) mechanism at its top.
