 Around the Titanic Hotel Gendarmenmarkt

After all, there’s plenty to discover in the area around the hotel in Berlin-Mitte. The newly renovated Staatsoper Unter den Linden opera house on historic Bebelplatz is just a stone’s throw from the hotel. Surrounded by the French and German cathedrals, this impressive building is an architectural marvel before you’ve even sampled the music played within. 

The history of the Gendarmenmarkt dates back to the 17th century – so there’s quite a lot of it to discover. With its cafes, restaurants, cosmopolitan hotels and stunning boutiques, it’s worth a visit in itself. You could spend a whole day here moving from one café to the next, sipping a beer here, trying chocolates there, and browsing the best of Berlin shopping in its many fashion boutiques. This square is often home to outdoor concerts, events and one of Berlin’s biggest Christmas markets.

If that’s not all, simply stray a street further from the hotel – where you’ll find Friedrichstraße, an iconic Berlin shopping street with a storied history. You should emerge halfway between Checkpoint Charlie and the Friedrichstraße rail station: both important border crossings when Berlin was still a divided city. You can still get a photo at Checkpoint Charlie today, while a fascinating exhibition at Friedrichstraße station lifts the curtain on the border crossing. Bookworms will love the Dussmann Kulturkaufhaus, where they can spend hours browsing for their ideal holiday reading and settling into to one of the cosy corners to sample what’s on offer.

Feeling peckish? Treat yourself to champagne and oysters in the basement of the Galeries Lafayette department store before continuing west towards the Brandenburg Gate and Hotel Adlon, around 15 minutes’ walk away. Behind that you’ll find the government district, with the famous Reichstag and the chancellery. This can be a busy spot when Parliament is in session. Heading the other direction from Gendarmenmarkt, you’ll find the Friedrichswerdersche Kirche, Humboldt Forum and Museum Island.

Now you’ve made it to Museum Island, time for a little art, culture and history. Home to five museums and the Monbijoupark, this is a great spot to explore ancient art and culture before enjoying a rest and refreshment in the park as you watch the dancers in summer and soak up the vibes. Cross the bridge and head left along the water to get back to the hotel.
