Architecture in Berlin

Visit because

The historical splendour of the city, ruin of WWII, and subsequent division and reconstruction, gives Berlin a unique context for both old and new architecture.

A place in constant transition, most of the world's foremost architects have created buildings within the city.

Neues Museum

NeuesMuseum-stair

The second museum to be constructed on Museum Island, but heavily damaged during the bombing of Berlin, this historically important building has been restored with extraordinary care by renown architect David Chipperfield who also created a striking new central stair.

It now stands as a monument recording both the grandeur of the original design, the destruction of WWII, and the reconstruction of Berlin.
