In the middle of the picturesque Gendarmenmarkt, the concert hall stands majestically. To the left and to the right are the German Dom and the FrenchDom das Zentrum des Platzes. The Gendarmenmarkt is originally part of Friedrichstadt, which was founded in 1691 and was a suburb of Berlin until 1709. The name Friedrichstadt comes from the Prussian King Friedrich I., who was still a great Elector when the city was founded.

In 1710, the cities of Friedrichstadt, Friedrichswerder, Dorotheenstadt, Cölln and Berlin were incorporated by order of Frederick I to the city of Berlin, the royal capital and residence city. The Gendarmenmarkt did not always mean it: in the 17th century it was the Linden market, then the Mittelmarkt, the Friedrichstadt market and finally Neuer Markt.

The place has its present name since 1799 to commemorate the stables of the regiment of Frederick William I, whose construction he commissioned in 1736.
