Marie-Elisabeth-Lüders-Haus

Notable Building in Historic Mitte

Home to the parliamentary library, this recently expanded, extravagant structure has a massive tapered stairway, a flat roofline jutting out like a springboard and giant circular windows. In the basement is an art installation by Ben Wagin featuring original segments of the Berlin Wall.

Accessible from the Luisenstrasse entrance is the Kunst-Raum, which presents politically infused contemporary art.
