Embassies and State Representations

The return of the embassies to the former noble villa quarter in Tiergarten has produced a collection of contemporary architecture with ambitious building concepts. Under the National Socialists, monumental new embassy buildings were constructed, for example for Japan, Italy, Spain and Denmark. After the Second World War, Berlin’s special political status and the relocation of the capital to Bonn plunged the entire quarter into a deep sleep.
Today, the colourful mix of state representations and embassies inspires visitors, presenting itself to them like an open-air architecture exhibition. The tour illustrates the diversity of the participating states and countries. One of the highlights of this tour is the new construction of a common house for the five Nordic countries Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland and Iceland by six different architectural offices: the Nordic Embassies.
