Fodor's Expert Review Deutsches Architekturmuseum

Sachsenhausen Historical

The German Architecture Museum is housed in a late-19th-century villa, which was converted in the early 1980s by the Cologne-based architect Oswald Mathias Ungers. He created five levels, including a simple basement space with a visible load-bearing structure, a walled complex on the ground floor, and a house-within-a-house on the third floor. With more than 180,000 drawings and plans, and 600 scale models, the museum features a wealth of documents on the history of architecture and hosts debates and exhibitions on its future, including sustainable urban design. A permanent exhibit features the most comprehensive collection of model panoramas in the history of German architecture.
