Founded in 1696, the Akademie der Künste (Academy of Arts) in Berlin is one of the oldest cultural institutes in Europe. This international community of artists currently has about 400 members and includes the sections fine arts, architecture, music, literature, performing arts, as well as film and media art.
Exhibitions, concerts, debates, readings, award ceremonies, film, theater and dance performances are organized here. In addition to the main building, the Akademie der Künste at Hanseatenweg is also an important location for exhibitions, events and meetings. This one includes the various archive buildings with their important collections.
The prominent position of the Akademie der Künste at Pariser Platz in Berlin-Mitte, between Hotel Adlon and Brandenburger Tor (Brandenburg Gate), additionally underlines the relevance of this institution in Berlin. The building is barrier-free.
