History of the site

From monastery to Berlin Palace and parade ground, and from Palace of the Republic to cultural building site – over the last 800 years the Schlossplatz has witnessed more social, urban, political and cultural developments than virtually any other location in Berlin.

When the Humboldt Forum opens section by section from the end of 2020 onwards, you will be able to experience the multifaceted history of the site with a fascinating tour through the entire building. From the original Palace Basement through the Panorama to the Sculpture Hall and the historical Traces, the various epochs are waiting to be discovered wherever you turn. You can already find out more about the history of the site from cultural events, projects and publications.
