Gendarmenmarkt is a square located in the central Mitte district of Berlin, Germany. Created at the end of the seventeenth century by Johann Arnold Nering and reconstructed in 1773 by Georg Christian Ungerin, the square is named after the cuirassier regiment Gens d’Armes, which was deployed at the square until 1773. A statue of Friedrich Schiller, a well-known German poet; can be found at the centre of the square. Most of the buildings located in and around Gendarmenmarkt square were badly damaged or destroyed in World War II but have since been restored to their former state.
