With two event buildings – in the heart of Berlin at the Brandenburg Gate and in the Tiergarten in the immediate vicinity of Bel-levue Palace – the Akademie der Künste boasts two very attractive venues in Ger-many’s capital. The international commu-nity of artists, established over 300 years ago, uses these premises to hold confer-ences, exhibitions and events.

But you too can hire these spacious con-ference halls and club rooms. Whether you’re planning a reception, a conference or a panel discussion, the Academy’s rooms are available for a wide range of uses.

The Academy building on Pariser Platz is

adjacent to Hotel Adlon, with the French and American embassies in the immediate vicinity. A public walkway through the building connects the square in front of the Brandenburg Gate to Behrenstrasse and the adjacent Holocaust Memorial. The transparent architecture designed by Beh-nisch & Partner together with Werner Durth and the sophisticated interior including furniture classics by Walter Knoll, makes this an exclusive location and unique set-ting for your event.

If you would prefer a more compact venue in a somewhat quieter setting, while still enjoying a central location within the city, you don’t have to look any further than our spacious Academy building ensemble on Hanseatenweg. The buildings, designed by Werner Düttmann and now listed as heritage sites, are some of the most out-standing examples of post-War Modernist architecture in Berlin.

Both buildings have witnessed many im-portant cultural events (and continue to do so), provide meeting places amongst artists and with representatives from the worlds of politics and industry, and also constitute ideal venues for focused discus-sions on current affairs. The diverse pro-gramme of exhibitions and events on offer there has established the venue as a key location in Berlin’s cultural life. More infor-mation on the history of the Academy, its members, its important archive and exten-sive public programme is available at: www.adk.de.

The following pages offer more detailed information on the various Academy rooms that are available for hire. A current price list is included.

tegrated into the modern ensemble as a ›building within a building‹. In addition to the five exhibition halls, it also contains a large event hall and a club room complete with roof terrace, among other facilities. The terrace affords a spectacular view of the Brandenburg Gate, the Reichstag and the Federal Chancellery all the way down to the Victory Column.

The building at the Brandenburg Gate,

de sign ed by the multi-award winning

ar-chitect and Academy member Günter Behnisch, was inaugurated in May 2005. This location is of particular historical signi-ficance for the Akademie der Künste, for it is here that the converted Arnim Palace housed the Royal Prussian Academy of Arts from 1907 onwards. Today the remains of the old Academy building have been
