Mitte - Museum Island
Friedrich August Stüler designed the Old National Gallery inspired by a sketch by Friedrich Wilhelm IV. It was not built until his death between 1866 and 1876 under the supervision of Johann Heinrich Strack. As part of the ensemble Museum Island it belongs to the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site since 1999.

In keeping with the architecture the Old National Gallery presents sculptures and paintings of the 19th century. The collection brings together many well-known artists such as Caspar David Friedrich, Carl Spitzweg, Adolph Menzel, Claude Monet, Edouard Manet, Auguste Renoir and Max Liebermann.

The Sculpture Hall with the “Two Princesses” by Johann Gottfried Schadow offers an impressive setting for a very exclusive dinner. Between works by Arnold Böcklin, Anselm Feuerbach and Hans von Marées lectures and ceremonial acts can also take place in the Deutsch-Römer-Saal (German-Roman Hall).

the artworks are presented today in accordance to the original concept and in context of the original ceilings, fireplaces, doorjambs, tapestries and furniture.

The so-called Basilica in the centre of the museum, which stretches over two floors and with its exhibited art, was supposed to give the impression of a Renaissance church room. It provides a festive setting for exclusive dinners. Receptions in the Great Domed Hall (Große Kuppelhalle) at the entrance are also possible.

The late classicist building of the Hamburger Bahnhof, which was built in 1874, served as a railway terminus for the route Berlin – Hamburg until the end of the 19th century. Josef Paul Kleihues transformed the Hamburger Bahnhof into a modern venue between 1992 and 1996.

The building now houses the Museum for contemporary art (Museum für Gegenwart). In addition to the Collection Marx, which includes works by artists such as Joseph Beuys and Andy Warhol, the Friedrich Christian Flick Collection is presented as a permanent loan until 2021 in the neighbouring Rieck Hall.

The Hamburger Bahnhof, in the northern centre of the city, not far from the government district and right on the main railway station (Hauptbahnhof), provides space for day and evening events of all kind. During the warmer months the courtyard can be used for receptions.

In the heart of Berlin - between Potsdamer Platz and the embassy district - is the Kulturforum. Based on a design by the architect Rolf Gutbrod from 1969, an ensemble of four museums was developed until 1998, which is connected by a central entrance hall.

The Kulturforum presents paintings of the 13th to 18th century in the Gemäldegalerie (Old Master Paintings), art-historical literature in the Kunstbibliothek (Art Library), drawings and watercolours at the Kupferstichkabinett (Museum of Prints and Drawings) as well as arts and crafts from the Middle Ages to the present at the Kunstgewerbemuseum (Museum of Decorative Arts).

The spacious entrance hall provides space for events with numerous guests. In the warmer months receptions can take place on the Piazetta in front of the Kulturforum overlooking the magnificent architectural backdrop of the nearby Potsdamer Platz.

The Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin is the largest academic universal library in Germany. Its special collections include even oriental manuscripts, (music) autographs, maps and historical journals. The building on Potsdamer Strasse is a research library for the modern holdings as from 1946.

The Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin is equipped with two lecture halls. The pentagonal Otto-Braun-Auditorium with fixed theatre style seating has excellent acoustics. Together with the Simón-Bolívar-Auditorium it is accessible via a separate entrance and foyer.

 Neukölln
The listed red-brick ensemble of the former Kindl brewery was built between 1926 - 1930 in a style reminiscent of German expressionism and a design of the architects Hans Claus & Richard Schepke.
After the purchase of the German-Swiss couple Burkhard Varnholt and Salome Grisard in 2011 the space was refurbished for contemporary cultural productions.

Under the artistic direction of the Swiss curator and art critic Andreas Fiedler
the KINDL – Centre for Contemporary Art shows various exhibitions of contemporary art. In connection with the refurbishment the exhibition space could be extended generously even more.

Depending on the individual exhibition plans there is one flat of the former Power House,
the spectacular 20-metre-high Boiler House and the Brew House with its six enormous copper available for different events!
The rooms and buildings are clearly characterised by their original use and can be rededicated appropriately today.

Museum Berggruen
Opposite to the Charlottenburg Palace, the stables of King Friedrich Wilhelm IV were built in classicist style in 1851, according to the plans by Friedrich August Stüler. Since 1996,
the National Gallery presents the art collection of Heinz Berggruen in the westerly Stüler building.

In the year 2000, the Stiftung Preußischer Kulturbesitz (Prussian Cultural Heritage Foundation) could purchase the collection. When Heinz Berggruen died in 2007, his family decided to lend further artworks to the museum. To properly exhibit these works, in 2013 the museum took over the neighbouring building which once served as the commandant's quarters for the Prussian military.

The outstanding collection of works of Classic Modernism mainly shows works by Pablo Picasso under the title “Picasso and his time”. In addition, mainly works by Paul Klee, Alberto Giacometti and Henri Matisse are presented.
Due to the small exhibition spaces guided tours are not possible during the day. Outside the opening hours, however, we can offer exclusive tours in up to four groups. This allows a very “private” view of the collection.

The neoclassical building of today’s Museum of Photography was built between 1908 and 1909, opposite to the train station Zoologischer Garten, according to the plans of Heino Schmieden and Julius Boethke. It initially served as a casino for the Prussian officer corps of the Berlin Landwehr division.

The Collection of Photography, a division of the Art Library, shows temporary exhibitions on all forms of photography from the 19th to the 20th century in the restored Kaisersaal. Alongside, the Helmut Newton Foundation presents works by Helmut Newton and his companions as permanent loans on two floors.

The Fürstensaal adjacent to the Kaisersaal was designed specifically for lecture events. Beyond that, it can also be used
for receptions and dinners. The lobby of the building with its famous “Big Nudes” by Helmut Newton also provides the possibility for receptions.

Opposite to the Charlottenburg Palace, Friedrich August Stüler built the Royal Guardhouse in 1851. The Collection Scharf-Gerstenberg is located easterly in the so-called Stüler buildings and the adjacent stables.

Titled “Surreal Worlds” top-class works are presented by the Surrealists and their precursors, from the holdings of the "Stiftung Sammlung Dieter Scharf zur Erinnerung an Otto Gerstenberg" (the foundation of the Dieter Scharf collection in remembrance of Otto Gerstenberg) including works by artists such as Hans Bellmer, Francisco de Goya, Salvador Dalí, René Magritte and Max Ernst.

Receptions, dinners and lecture events can take place in the Remise (coach house), which adjoins the Marstall (royal stables) and offers direct access to the courtyard. Since the Remise does not serve as an exhibition space, it is also available during the day.

Köpenick
The baroque castle in Köpenick was built in 1677-1690 as the residence for Prince Friedrich of Brandenburg. It is regionally situated very delightfully, on an island in the river Dahme on the outskirts of Berlin’s district Köpenick.

Today the Köpenick Palace is a branch of the Museum of Decorative Arts. The exhibited works, such as tapestries and precious centrepieces, were used as wall and room decorations in bourgeois and courtly dwelling rooms during the Renaissance, Baroque and Rococo.

The Aurora Hall, with its magnificent stucco ceiling, provides a dignified setting for ceremonies, weddings, concerts and dinners. The courtyard and the shoreline of the river Dahme invite to concerts, receptions and dinners during the warmer months.
