In the Knoblauchhaus Museum you enter the world of Biedermeier. Carefully reconstructed living rooms show how the Knoblauch family lived and ran their business here 200 years ago. In this way, you will vividly get to know the living culture and attitude to life at that time. In the new exhibition area “Berlin Salon”, you can also meet friends of the Knoblauch family, including famous people such as the master builder Karl Friedrich Schinkel and the scholars Wilhelm and Alexander von Humboldt.
The Knoblauch House is one of the few remaining 18th century bourgeois houses in the centre of Berlin. For many years it was a meeting place for family celebrations and a venue for social activities. The restored living quarters are furnished in Biedermeier style and show how Berlin merchants lived in the period between the end of the Napoleonic era and the bourgeois revolution in Germany. The Knoblauchhaus has been open to the public as a museum since 1989.
