This futuristic structure opens up a window on the Berlin City Palace, to be called the Humboldt Forum , the reconstruction of which has been under way since 2013. Interactive displays introduce various exhibition concepts, chronicle the palace's history and explain the state-of-the-art construction technology used in its reconstruction.

A highlight is a fantastically detailed model that shows how the historic palace fit into the old city centre around 1900. Great views from the upstairs cafe terrace.
