This square is the main square of the city and perhaps one of the most beautiful in Berlin. It was established by order of Frederick the Great. He wanted to change the structure of the square and the churches of the French Huguenot communities, but they did not agree, and Frederick was ordered to build a central building that would architecturally reject the churches to the edge of the square. At first the square was named the Gendarmerie Square - the source of the name is French. Then the name was changed to Schiller square after the German national poet. The square was also called Lindenmarkt - the linden or Linden market - a tree that is very common in Berlin and was planted here for drying swamps. Translated with Google Translate
