Art and culture on a grand scale
Boasting an eclectic slate of more than 20 art, photography and cultural exhibitions a year, this neo-Renaissance Berlin landmark was built between 1877 and 1881 by architects Martin Gropius and Heino Schmieden, and it was the former's great-nephew, Bauhaus movement founder Walter Gropius (1883–1969), who saved it from demolition following severe Second World War damage. The restored, reinvented and renamed structure reopened in 1981, simultaneously staging multiple exhibitions that greatly expand on the museum's original commitment to the applied arts. It is also the main venue for the annual Berliner Festspiele and its location, on the Mitte/Kreuzberg border, is geographically marked by serious Berlin Wall and Nazi history. Closed Tuesday. S-Bahn/U-Bahn: Potsdamer Platz. S-Bahn: Anhalter Bahnhof.
