Permanent Exhibition of the Gründerzeit Museum in Berlin Mahlsdorf
The Gründerzeit Museum of Charlotte von Mahlsdorf in Berlin today houses one of the most beautiful collections on the Gründerzeit in Berlin. Together with the estate park and the museum, the manor house in Marzahn-Hellersdorf forms an ensemble that is highly worth seeing, in which residential and garden culture are combined in an exemplary manner.
There are 14 completely furnished exhibition rooms of the house: In an extraordinary unity they are equipped with furniture, cast-iron stoves and lamps up to laundry sets and monogram embroidery from the Gründerzeit (1870-1900).
The grandfather clocks here go with gentle ticking and strong chimes, and in the kitchen there is even an icebox and many typical kitchen utensils, in addition to an original stove of the time. Charlotte, a trained conservator, is particularly fond of clocks, music boxes, phonographs and gramophones. Overhanging chandeliers and high wall mirrors recreate the atmosphere of a balmy summer evening in the former garden hall.
Guests can feel the airy elegance of the so-called "Good Room," which leads to the estate park via an open staircase.
A walk through the picturesque manor park with its restored historically curved paths will delight.
And in the basement of the house a completely different ambience awaits:
Here is the last completely preserved Berlin pub from the Scheunenviertel. Charlotte rescued the "Mulackritze" when the building was demolished in 1963 and restored it to its original state in the museum's basement.
In the club room and the "Hurenstube" one feels like in Pinselheinrich Zille's times. At Charlotte in Mahlsdorf, people from film, artist and gay circles of (East) Berlin met during the GDR.
Together with the manor park and the museum, the manor house in Mahlsdorf - in the Berlin district of Marzahn-Hellersdorf - forms an ensemble that is highly worth seeing, in which residential and garden culture are combined in an exemplary manner.
The museum visit is possible by appointment and in compliance with the current conditions.
