Französischer Dom

Location

The location impresses with its historical flair. Situated at the Gendarmenmarkt in Berlin Mitte, the Französische Dom and the Friedrichstadtkirche combine 1.000 m² of event space. The shared building offers two rooms suitable for workshops, meetings and seminars. The big hall, with a capacity of maximum 500 people, is perfectly suitable for concerts or gala dinners. A smaller room under the big hall provides complementary space. This place is also very special because of its own viewing platform from which Berlin can be viewed from a height of 40 meters. Enjoy our on-site Catering at your event.
