The Humboldt Forum
The Humboldt Forum occupies one of Europe’s most multi-layered sites, both in its archaeological history and in the momentous events that have affected it over 800 years.
The new Humboldt Forum building sits on an island on the River Spree in the historic heart of Berlin. Opposite to it is the cluster of museums that comprises Museum Island, designated a World Heritage site in 1999. The Humboldt Forum completes the jigsaw of this extraordinarily significant area, close to the Brandenburg Gate.
