Since 1999 the so called Ku’damm-Karree at Kurfürstendamm / Uhlandstrasse is hosting the exhibition The Story of Berlin. The exhibition is partly located in a former nuclear bomb shelter and is a popular destination and both Berlin visitors and Berliners.
Around 250.000 visitors come and see the exhibition per year – recently the 3.5 million mark was reached by a family from Potsdam.
Until recently the future of the The Story of Berlin was uncertain, because the previous investor first wanted to tear most the the mall-linke building down. The exhibition and the former nuclear bomb shelter would have been in the way. Now the Ku’damm-Karree was again sold – and the new owner wants to keep the exhibition. So maybe on your next visit to Berlin you can also go and see The Story of Berlin.
