New Architecture in Mitte

Volksbühne to Hackesche Höfe

Berlin‘s only preserved old town lies not in its centre, but right next door. The neighbourhood around the Hackesche H fe attracts the most tourists besides the Brandenburg Gate, but the real gems of the area once named „Spandauer Vorstadt“ are only discovered by criss-crossing through its hidden courtyards, parks and small squares. A vibrant art and gallery scene has developed in the former Jewish quarter, taking root in
old factories or in narrow lots with some strikingly high-quality architecture. Right in the middle of it, framed by housing developments by the father of modernism Hans Poelzig, lies the famous Volksbühne, built at the beginning of the 20th century and still one of the city‘s most influential theatres.
