Concerts and chow

On-route back to our hotel for food we swing by the impressive Concert hall.

The Konzerthaus Berlin is a concert hall situated on the Gendarmenmarkt square in the central Mitte district of Berlin housing the German orchestra Konzerthausorchester Berlin.

Built as a theatre from 1818 to 1821 under the name of the Schauspielhaus Berlin, later also known as the Theater am Gendarmenmarkt and Komödie, its usage changed to a concert hall after the Second World War.

The Gendarmenmarkt was first built in 1688 as a marketplace and other notable buildings include Französischer Dom (French church) and the Deutscher Dom (German church).

The German church was completely destroyed by fire but was rebuilt and re-opened in 1996 as a museum of German history.

After working up an appetite we held to another tasty restaurant just around the corner from our hotel. La Cantina is a cozy Italian with a homely vibe.
