UNESCO World Heritage

Three historical ensembles of Berlin are, according to the UNESCO, of extraordinary cultural importance and thus worthy of preservation. In the UNESCO World Heritage List were recorded the Museum Island, the landscape of palaces and gardens between Berlin and Potsdam, and six Berlin Modernist housing estates. They are examples not only of different architectural styles, but also reflect the ideals of their eras. The World Heritage Day is every year on June, 2nd.

With its magnificent chandeliers, retro eastern European style, red armchairs and huge glass front, the cinema’s foyer is a highlight in itself. Be it premieres or gay parties, this cinema hosts all sorts of events where glamorous VIPs mix with students, film lovers and party people.
