Haus des Rundfunks, Berlin Radio House

This post is about the radio house located in the Messe district to which I dedicated a post a few months ago. In the meantime I had the chance to enter the building for a concert and it is its interior that I want to share with you.

The Haus des Rundfunks was built between 1929 and 1931 by Hans Poelzig. The beautiful facade is covered with black bricks and red-brown tiles.

Although located in the British sector when Berlin was partitioned in 1945, the Soviets continued to control the place until 1956, one of the oddities of Berlin during the cold war.

Now let’s go through the doors of the radio house and stay in its 1930s wing.

If you want to discover or rediscover my pot on the Messe district:

You can find another example of a building designed by Hans Poelzig in a post I wrote a few months ago about the city of Breslau
