Permanent Exhibition

Here is Berlin!

(Hi)stories from the Stadtmuseum Collection

Experience a very special kind of city trip through almost 800 years of Berlin’s history. Stroll down streets and across squares, and linger by buildings – all of which will tell you their own particular stories. Discover things known and unknown, and a few treasures which were hidden in the storehouse for many years.

The only original part of the quadriga

Starting in the historic heart of the city, wander through the Tiergarten to Moabit, Charlottenburg, Wilmersdorf and Friedrichshain. Get to know residential streets and districts, and learn how the place once called Berlin-Cölln has developed through to our times. This is mirrored in treasures from the painting and applied arts collections, and in everyday objects. On your way, you will meet the Berolina of Alexanderplatz and the only remaining part of the quadriga on the Brandenburg Gate: the horse head from Schadow’s group of sculptures. 

From the Castle to the Scheunenviertel

If you walk down Brüderstraße, you come to the house of the publisher Friedrich Nicolai, and further along to the castle. Going past the Lustgarten, you will stroll down Unter den Linden until you get to the model of the famous Schinkel building. From there, you will come to the Hansaviertel district, where you will see the buildings from the 1957 International Building Exhibition, and to the Kurfürstendamm; then you can go eastwards to the former Italian colony on Schönhauser Allee and to the “Royal Iron Foundry” on Invalidenstraße. Finally, you can make one more detour to Tegel, to August Borsig’s engine construction facility – or take a tour through the Scheunenviertel, where you can find out more about Jewish life in the city.
