The New National Gallery is closed since January 2015 unfortunately for several years due to important and substantial restructuring and is only involved sporadically in cultural events (for example, Berlin Art Week 2015) .
Nevertheless, it’s worth a walk around the only building by the famous German-American architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe built after WW2 in Germany. Because it is located near the Cultural Forum (Kulturforum), the Philharmonic (Philharmonie), the Potsdamer Platz and the new gallery district at Potsdamer Straße, a visit can be combined perfectly. The construction of the New National Gallery is an icon of classic modern art. It was opened in 1968.
