Important building of postal history as new venue At the end of the 19th century, over 300 telegraphs were located in the hall that is architecturally inspired by the Venetian Renaissance.

The new location is situated in the heart of historic Berlin and in the midst of the art hotspots Museum Island and Gendarmenmarkt as well as the galleries and art collections not far from the Friedrichswerdersche church built by Karl Friedrich Schinkel.
