Martin Gropius Bau

The impressive museum building was erected accordings to the plans by Martin Gropius and Heino Schmieden in renaissance design as a crafts Museum. Besides, it housed several other collections until it was seriously damaged by bombs in the last weeks of WWII. Only in 1966 it was listed as a monument worthy of preservation and in 1978 reconstructions works started, carried out respectfully by the architects Winnetou Kampmann and Ute Weström. Then the building was named after Martin Gropius, a great-uncle of Bauhaus founder Walter Gropius who had long since called for the museum's reconstruction.

Today Martin-Gropius-Building is one of the most famous and beautiful exhibition spaces in Germany. It offers an adequate setting for international exhibitions of any kind. Architects Hillmer & Sattler were in charge of another refurbishment that took place in 1999/2000: Air-conditioning was installed and the Northern entrance, that had faced the Wall during 29 years, was restored as the main entrance.

Open: Wednesday to Monday from 10 am to 8 pm
Address: Niederkirchnerstraße 7 - 10963 Berlin - +49/ (0)30. 254 86-0
