The German Church beside the later added dome-shaped building on Gendarmenmarkt was built from 1701 to 1708. Already 80 years later it crumbled, so it was demolished and reconstructed in Baroque style.

The purpose-less dome-crowned tower was added from 1780 to 1785. It was badly damaged in World War II and reconstructed between 1982 and 1996. In 2002 it even got a purposed. The building is used for an exhibition of German parliament, telling the story of Germany?s parliamentary democracy. The title is: ?Wege, Irrwege, Umwege? ? paths, meanders, deviations.

If you are not interested in this exhibition there is not more to do than to have a look up to the top of the tower where you can see the sky through a round skylight.

Not sure about the entry fee. On the internet I read it is free but I think to remember that you would have had to pay a fee.
