It would be no overstatement to call this gem of Belle Époque commercial architecture one of the finest and most presentable historic office buildings in Berlin. Which makes it unsurprising that two embassies – those of Chile and Liechtenstein – have made it their home. The 7 storey building has the most conspicuous aspect of the magnificent façade are the large windows, which are nearly of floor-to-ceiling height, and which fill the offices with daylight. The property was extensively redeveloped between 1998 and 2002.
Tenants also benefit from another signature feature in addition to the grand architecture, and that is the building's location: practically next door to Gendarmenmarkt with its stunning ensemble of Schauspielhaus, Französischer Dom, and Deutscher Dom. Add to this the nearby high-street boulevards of Friedrichstrasse and Unter den Linden. In short: a top location in downtown East Berlin.
The area around Gendarmenmarkt is equally popular among locals and visitors. While tourists tend to take in the many sights, local residents take advantage of the top-notch shopping venues, the wide range of restaurants, and quite simply the cosy-bourgeois ambience of the quarter.
Two underground lines and several bus lines that stop in the immediate vicinity link the property to the public transportation network. A short ride will take you to Alexanderplatz, the central railway station, or the government district. It doesn't get more central than that.
