Finally the Buchstabenmuseum (Museum of Letters) opens again. The spectacular arches under the Bellevue S-Bahn station now house the entire collection of the world’s unique museum: around 2,000, in some cases huge, written objects from the urban space.

In the first special exhibition at the new location, striking signs from the world-famous Hansaviertel can be seen from 22 November 2019. Its architecture, including the letters, is entirely in keeping with the classic modern style of the 20th century. The exhibition highlights typical design features and is accompanied by contemporary photos, advertising material and sketches. A small sensation is the original construction board of the Interbau 1957 with the development plan of the Hansaviertel and a list of the international star architects who were involved.


Exhibition opening: Thursday 21.11.2019, 18:00 to 21:00

Exhibition period: Friday 22.11.2019 to Sunday 19.04.2020
