Dorothea's Place

Dorothea’s Place“ is an exclu­si­ve pro­ject based on plans desi­gned by world-renowned archi­tect Prof. Peter Schwe­ger. Com­pri­sing just 15 apart­ments and a gal­le­ry direct­ly adja­cent to Berlin’s Muse­ums­in­sel (a UNESCO World Heri­ta­ge site), it offers a clear view of the Per­ga­mon­mu­se­um, the Neu­es Muse­um, and Ber­lin Cathe­dral.
The pro­ject takes its name from Doro­thea von Bran­den­burg, a 17th-century elec­tress who hel­ped shape the quarter’s urban deve­lop­ment into Doro­the­en­stadt, as the quar­ter is still known today. The building’s ent­ran­ces fea­ture two pho­to­gra­phic Por­traits, dedi­ca­ted to the Ber­lin patro­ness, who was brought back to life for a day by the Aus­tri­an per­for­mance artist Ire­ne Andes­s­ner.
