At the time, the largest office building in Europe, and, as with most Nazi architecture, designed to intimidate, as well as impress. At the time, it formed a large part of the government district containing the Nazi government. I am surprised that it survived the...More
Considering how destructive the Allied bombing of Berlin was during the war it is remarkable that this building somehow survived intact. It is one of the few building built during the Nazi era which survives today, and perhaps that is why it is worth a...More
The only oldest building in Berlin, which stands still till now without any damage from WWII. This was used to store food grains during the war, and thus govt. tried to protect it; whereas Allied forces wanted to preserve it to use it as a...More
A large solid building with nothing architecturally going for it ,some interesting wall murals on it although there seemed to be a lot of tourists ,I do not see the attraction other than the link from 1935 when it was builty
Built in 1935, the Finance Ministry building is a rare, large, survivor of wartime era architecture. The building resembles Tempelhof airport and was designed by the same architect, Ernst Sagebiel. It was the Air Ministry when built. Now called the Detlev-Rohwedder Haus in honour of...More
Build in the mid 1930's this is a somber looking building, which somehow managed to survive the massive bombing of Berlin and the Soviet occupation.
There were no tours of the building available during our visit to Berlin.
Walked past this building on way to house of terrors. Although it is a big building its grey and intimidating features go well with its previous history.
That said if you closely you can see quite clearly where the scars of the war have been...More
Built in 1935-1936, the now Ministry of Finance building, used to be the Aviation Ministry office led by Hitler's second in command, Hermann Goering.
It was one of the few Nazi buildings that survived the 1944-1945 extensive bombing by the Allied Forces. After the 2nd...More
It’s hard to find pieces of Berlin that survived World War II. The entire city was bombed out and what you say today had more to do with the Cold War than with World War II. This one, the Detlev-Rohwedder-Haus is one of the very...More
The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given
way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighbourhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
