30 minutes private tour in our Carrosse DeLouis electric coach to Berlin's historic district around Gendarmenmarkt and Museumsinsel

Ultimate romance: The most romantic places in Berlin will be visited within the scope of this short tour.
"Gendarmenmarkt" is said to be the "most beautiful place in Berlin". It is surrounded by three monuments: Deutscher Dom (German Church), Französischer Dom (French Church) and Konzerthaus. It had several names in the course of time, including "Lindenmarkt", "Friedrichstädtischer Markt" and "Neuer Markt", until it was named "Gendarmenmarkt" in 1799. It was given this name because the guard regiment "Gens d'armes" had been located here from 1736 until 1782.
Since 1999 the Museum Island, which is located in the historic center of Berlin, has been the only cultural and architectural ensemble that is considered part of UNESCO World Heritage.
Its history, however, has been very diverse. Having been swampland in the Middle Ages, it was used for several purposes in the following centuries: Friedrich I had the so-called "Pomeranzenhof" built at this place, a gallery for tropical fruits and exotic plants. Under Friedrich Wilhelm I the orangerie was used as a warehouse and salt storage. It was not until 1830 that the first Prussian public museum which was open to the public had been built here. It is today known as "Old Museum".
All five large museums of the Museum Island mainly exhibit archeological collections and artwork of the 19th century. After German Reunification, the collections that had been distributed across the East and West were pooled at this place to present them in a didactic context. Following a master plan, the James Simon Gallery shall serve as central entrance building for the whole Museum Island from 2017 on.
