Welcome to Hotel Luc, Autograph Collection
Experience a unique stay at Gendarmenmarkt Berlin
It continues an intrinsic heritage of acceptance, generosity and can-dor that does justice to Berlin's most beautiful city square. Our 5 star boutique hotel is conveniently located in Friedrichstadt, Berlin and offers guests a glimpse into the elegant, deep-blue world of Prussia's legacy. 70 restful rooms and 22 exclusive suites offer a balance of formality and a sense of freedom. The strategically chosen location opposite the French Dom showcases the grandeur of Berlin, while the architectural ensemble of the Konzerthaus and the Deutscher Dom across the square serve as a reminder of Prussian religious tolerance and humility. Worried about leaving your furry friends behind? Bring them along! Our hotel is pet friendly and welcomes trained pets.This candor flows throughout the entire hotel, inspiring the interior design, the gastronomy, and the overall philosophy. With this approach in mind, the Hotel Luc reinvents a contemporary Prussian way of life with local ease.
A World of Deep Prussian Blue

Freedom Beckons from Behind a Stern Façade
Prussia recalls an image of industriousness, severity, and a military past. But there’s more to that story: the search for personal freedom is deeply rooted in Prussian virtues. This concept moves us still today. King Fredrick I gave religious freedom to the persecuted Huguenots. Frederick the Great brought character to state leadership, with his frivolity, irony, and wit; rumors of his passionate personal life still linger. But where Prussian virtues prevail, the obverse is never far off. We find that inspiring. We embrace our history by playing with the fields of conflict that define yesterday and today – and we do so with wit. The Hotel Luc proudly bears the affectionate, albeit teasing, nickname of Frederick the Great – given to him by none other than his close confidante Voltaire. Prussia was both clear and free, and today, Berlin wants to reclaim that image.
The Contemporary Friedrichstadt
An Alternative to Berlin’s Chaotic Charm
Upscale, yet understated elegance framed by classic beauty: that’s what visitors to the Gendarmenmarkt will find here. Berlin's Mitte district offers high-quality gastronomy and shops where the historic monuments and buildings of Prussia’s past are just a short stroll away. The Gendarmenmarkt itself attracts with open-air festivals in the summer and an atmospheric Christmas market in the winter.
The Best of Prussia
The Iconic Spud
The iconic history of the potato plays a special role in the Hotel Luc. It welcomes guests from its bed of white porcelain, direct from the legendary Royal Porcelain Manufactory. King Fredrick I, better known as Old Fritz to the people of Prussia, made the potato something great: he gave a starving nation a simple solution. But the potato didn’t gain its popularity immediately. The people of Prussia found them dirty and tasteless. However, in a fashion of true Prussian order, a Potato Ordinance spread throughout the land. A rumored reputation as the “new royal vegetable” gave it the aura of elegance and charm it needed to launch a legacy of adoration. Lunch at Luc proves just how much flavor and variety exists in potatoes today. Take a curious look around while you stay with us, because the potato – sometimes simple, sometimes gilded in precious metal – is full of surprises. It gives us an opportunity to playfully integrate our heritage into your experience.
Our Prussian heritage lies in open-heartedness and a sense of duty towards people, animals and goods. These principles guide our made-to-share, modern cuisine. Gather in our elegant restaurant, cocktail bar, terrace or private Club Room from 6pm.
How would a modern Prussian begin the day? From our perspective, rather orderly, yet lavishly. We offer breakfast à la carte until 3pm. daily. Later, stop by to enjoy Prussian style lunch or cake and coffee with view of the Dom.
A delicious à la carte breakfast with a view of Gendarmenmarkt, a lunch in the sun, or a tasty dinner on a mild summer evening. Sounds tempting? Treat yourself to a little break on our terrace and enjoy the warm summer days.
Visit our new Champagne Bar on our summer terrace, offering a magnificent view of Gendarmenmarkt and the French Cathedral. Treat yourself to a glass of Champagne and a bite to eat while enjoying the wonderfully warm season.

Potato Edict at Hotel Luc
Centuries ago, it gave a starving nation a simple solution to hunger. Today, it serves as a deliciously beloved culinary staple. There is so much goodness in something so simple; a reason for us to be proud that we Germans are often jokingly referred to as potatoes – or Kartoffel – across the globe. We have Fredrick the Great to thank for that.
Art That Plays a Role in Past and Present
Large format photography adorns the halls of the Hotel Luc, creating a balance between austerity and freedom, and between the 18th century and today. Found on every floor, these images combine three key elements: a love for Berlin, an understanding of Prussian history, and a surprisingly contemporary juxtaposition. We invite you to take a look around: each one offers a different reading of our ambiguous past.
Sleep In… in Berlin
The city of Berlin thrives on a feeling of freedom. Strictly scheduled mealtimes have no place here. That's why we offer our guests the opportunity to relax and enjoy breakfast at their own pace, any time before 3 p.m. Always fresh. Always individual. We prefer it à la carte; the Prussians certainly would’ve too. So moral, so beautiful, and yet so carefree.
