Is there anything to see?
More green areas than built-up areas. The architectural design ranges from soberly strident to organic and brightly coloured.
Social hotspot, famous memorials and Berlin’s second largest park. Plus a UNESCO World Heritage Site and an unexpectedly high density of listed buildings.
And: A museum-preserved architectural gem. Exclusive.
Discover the diversity.
Or, in answer to the initial question: Yes, of course!

Included at selected dates is “an exclusive visit at the highest level”: The museum-preserved studio of Hans Scharoun above the roofs of Charlottenburg-North. This is where the architect of the Berlin Philharmonie lived and worked until his death.
Newspaper & Radio
About the former studio of Hans Scharoun there are two full page german newspaper articles with me:
Also a radio feature was recorded with my
cooperation partners, the Scharoun Society and me as a guest
broadcasted for the german rbb kulturradio:
The opening hours for the “Day of the Open Monument” mentioned in the article will be changed from 2019.
Please inform yourself annually from May in the official program.
of the former studio of Hans Scharoun
Just like the previous owner, the current owner, Deutsche Wohnen SE, has clearly spoken out in favour of preserving this architectural gem. A few years ago, Deutsche Wohnen SE entrusted me with the key management.
Throughout the year a visit is normally reserved exclusively for trade visitors: After you have received a permit* from Deutsche Wohnen SE, I will take you upstairs.
Only on Berlin’s “Tag des offenen Denkmals” (open monument day) – every year on the second weekend in September – is it open to the public in the afternoon.
These dates are accordingly very busy and since 2019 must be regulated by means of pre-registration and limiting the number of visitors.
The tour described above is an authorized tour which allows you to visit the studio. Relaxed.
* In order to protect the studio and also the residents of the building against excessive visitor frequency, a permit is subject to certain conditions. Please feel free to ask me about this using the contact form for special topics.
