The BERLIN-MITTE-ARCHIV works not only by preserving of historic collections, but also by increasing distribution and accessebility of information to a wide range of users.

Our services include:


 Research of property and building

Due to the drastic changes through war and destruction research of history of numerous buildings becomes a true puzzle particulary if the exact location of earlier structures is difficult to identify due to urban reorganization.


All publicly available data on the history of buildings and their purposes can be obtained at BERLIN-MITTE-ARCHIV.

We also search for specific dokuments in other archives on behalf  of owners or other authorized persons to optain further information about former and present properties.
