Visitors to Berlin may be familiar with luxurious Regent Berlin located at the Gendarmenmarkt but not its rich history dating back to around 1780. It was originally a residential mansion at Charlottenstrasse 49 built by Karl von Gontard, the same architect behind the modifications to the original Deutscher Dom and Französischer Dom cathedrals in Berlin. The property was taken over in 1811 by famous wine merchants Lutter & Wegner, who operated a wine shop and restaurant that counted celebrities like author E.T.A. Hoffmann and court actor Ludwig Devrient as guests. Unfortunately it was destroyed during World War II and laid in ruins during the DDR period until the "Hofgarten am Gendarmenmarkt" project.

Through the input of German architect Josef P. Kleihues and American interior designer Frank Nicholson, the mansion was resuscitated as a Four Seasons Hotel in 1996. In September 2004, the property joined Regent Hotels & Resorts and has since been reputed for its first-class service as the Regent Berlin. Its own signature restaurant Fischers Fritz, under the helm of renowned Executive Chef Christian Lohse has since been awarded 2 Michelin stars for 7 consecutive years.
