For hundreds of years, France and Germany have had a complex past that's led each culture to influence the other — especially in architecture. In Berlin, capture a symbol of French history at this 18th-century cathedral that was originally built for French Protestants who were exiled from France and found refuge in Germany.

The image of Französischer Dom and the Konzerthaus steps was taken facing north in Gendarmenmarkt in Berlin. To get this view, head to the stairs of the large central building (Schauspielhaus) in Gendarmenmarkt. From there, you'll see the lion statue and steps to your right, just outside of the Konzerthaus. Stand slightly to the right of the lion statue so the view of the cathedral is directly ahead of you.
