WELCOME AT HUMBOLDT-BOX
The Humboldt-Box shows visitors the new Berlin Palace Humboldt Forum from some surprising angles. It highlights various impressive aspects related to the palace’s former and latest history and to the state-of-the-art construction technology used on the site. One exhibit which has proved particularly popular with the audience is the large-scale model of “Berlin around 1900”. The Humboldt Box is currently one of the city’s most visited attractions. It is the showcase for the Berlin Palace Humboldt Forum. On display are examples of innovative exhibition concepts. The Humboldt brothers would have approved of the “haven for arts and sciences” that is being created here. The tour around the interactively designed exhibition floors becomes a journey of discovery that engages all senses. The top floor offers views across the palace construction site and the museums on Museumsinsel. It may be a good idea to set aside some time to spend at the café/restaurant located there, which has panorama terraces.

In the coming years, the large-scale Berliner Schloss-Humboldtforum (Berlin City Palace / Humboldtforum) construction project will be realized on the palace grounds in Berlin. A tour of the Humboldt-Box highlights the importance of this unique cultural building project. The palace’s original size as well as its political significance and complexity as a historical monument are impressive. But it is the proposed content of the palace’s programming that finally convinced the German Bundestag to proceed with this undertaking in 2009. It was decided to develop a national project in the center of Berlin that would serve as an innovative meeting and cultural center. The interactive exhibitions one encounters on a tour through the Humboldt-Box reveal the project’s scope and conceptual plan.
