Twenty years ago, in autumn 1999, the common embassy complex of the five Nordic countries was inaugurated in Berlin. This project was unique in the world. Not only because the five countries united forces on building this modern Berlin landmark – but also because they added an additional building, a house open to all: the Felleshus. Today, about 100,000 visitors flock to the Felleshus every year, be it for an exhibition or event, lunch at the canteen, a snack at our own Kaffebar, or just to marvel at the iconic architecture.
Felleshus and the Nordic Embassies are far from the only spot in Berlin to catch a Nordic breeze. To trace a route through the many design and fashion shops, restaurants and cafés, art memorials and o much more, we’ve created this interactive map (just click on the numbers). As a birthday present to us. And as an invitation to you – to take a walk in Nordic Berlin!
We’re curious, so let us know: What is Nordic for you? #NordicForMe #TheNordics
And if you prefer a printed map, stop by at Felleshus or one of the many Nordic locations listed in the map and get one there. You can also download the PDF here.
