Marble walls and floors glisten with the reflection of crystal chandeliers. Underneath, guests linger, settle onto fringed ottomans, their likenesses caught in gilded mirrors. Outside, Gendarmenmarkt Square evokes another, more romantic era. Hear the vibrato of violins fill the air as tempos rise and fall in the nearby Konzerthaus concert hall, flanked by eighteenth-century German and French cathedrals, their domes stretching skyward in reverence.

Walls ringed with tufted leather banquettes paired with lounge-worthy armchairs create a salon-inspired setting just right for sampling regional cuisine and a selection of fine meats, carved table-side. Take to the terrace in the summer months for lighter fare, framed by blossoming orange trees.
Old and new Europe effortlessly melt together at the Hackesche Höfe, a destination for lovers of architecture — and shopping — since the early twentieth century.
