Wikipedia

Hackescher-Markt (it. Hackescher Markt - letters. "Hacksky Market") - area and transport hub in Spandau suburb of Berlin, Mitte district. Center nightlife of the city. Right up to the beginning of the 19th century, a moor lay here in a swampy area. After the demolition of the fortifications under Frederick II, the Berlin commandant, Count Hans Christoph Friedrich von Hacke, ordered the construction of a square at this place, which soon received his name.

In the late XIX - early XX century, with the development of public transport, Hackescher Markt became a major transportation hub in the city center. Next to the square was the Berlin Stock Exchange, the eponymous city train station was built. During the Second World War, part of the building area was destroyed. After the war, Hackescher-Markt was in the Soviet sector of the occupation of Berlin and by the 60s after the restoration of the historical center of the city Alexanderplatz lost its former importance.

After the unification of Germany and Berlin in 1990, the old structures that were preserved were reconstructed, the gaps in the building were eliminated. The area has become mostly pedestrian. At Hackescher Markt, in the arches of the station viaduct and on the surrounding streets, various gastronomic enterprises were located, and Hackescher Markt became the starting point for Berlin’s nightly entertainment. The square has a beer garden and a weekend market. Translated with Google Translate

The embankment of the river Spree is a great place to see the museum island and its main building - the cathedral. Wikipedia Berlin Cathedral (it. Berliner Dom) - the largest evangelical church in Germany. Included in the EKD. Located on the Museum Island of Berlin.

The cathedral was built in the years 1894-1905 by the project of Julius Rashdorf as the main church of Prussian Protestants and the court church of the ruling Hohenzollern dynasty. The cathedral is made in the Baroque style. Initially, the richly decorated building of Silesian granite, reaching a height of 114 meters with a dome. After World War II, a seriously damaged cathedral was reconstructed, and now it has a more modest height of 98 meters (slightly less than St. Isaac's Cathedral in St. Petersburg). Solemnly opened on June 6, 1993. The hopper of the Hohenzollern dynasty is also open to visitors, where 70 of the 89 remaining graves are represented; among them is the luxurious sarcophagus of the Great Elector and his wife Dorothea.

The organ for the cathedral was built by the famous German organ master of the Romantic era, Wilhelm Sauer.

In front of the cathedral is the Lustgarten Park, which for centuries has been constantly changing its appearance. After the reconstruction, the park acquired its modern appearance on September 24, 1999. Now Lustgarten is a green lawn with a lawn, as Karl Friedrich Schinkel once conceived, with a fountain in the center. Translated with Google Translate
