Haus Schwarzenberg: Street Art Alley in Berlin Mitte

Haus Schwarzenberg: Street Art Alley in Berlin Mitte
Share

Haus Schwarzenberg is a real favorite hidden at the back of a small courtyard, in the heart of Berlin's central Mitte district. An unusual place where Street Art unfolds freely. This is a piece of alternative Berlin that survives the surrounding real estate pressure in a modern urban district. The site was preserved at the initiative of the Haus Schwarzenberg association, which occupies one of the buildings at the end of the alley.

This hybrid place includes artists' studios, a cinema, the Kino Central, two bars, as well as the  The Museum of Otto Weidt's Workshop for the Blind (Museum Blindenwerkstatt Otto Weidt) where the story of Otto Weidt, a resistance fighter from the Second World War who employed blind and disabled Jews to protect them from the Nazi regime, is told. You can also see the permanent exhibition of the Anne Frank Centre.

Art, history and alternative cultures share the premises in a relaxed atmosphere. You have to go there, observe the murals and visit every nook and cranny.

A must-see place to see street art in Berlin

Located at the back of the building's courtyard are the Eschschloraque, an underground bar with concerts in the evening, the Kino Central, a cinema with open-air films in summer or the Monsterkabinett, a kind of old-fashioned, infernal merry-go-round or a ghost train without train with monsters and automatons. At the end of the courtyard, a staircase leads you to the various artists' and designers' studios. Every corner of the spaces is covered with collages, tags, paintings and graffiti.

The Haus Schwarzenberg is an unusual and unavoidable place for Street Art lovers, this small building courtyard is home to many treasures! To visit during a walk in the Berlin Mitte district during the day, or to have a drink in the evening.
