Kathe Kollwitz Museum, Berlin

Explore the Kathe Kollwitz Museum on your trip to Berlin.

At the end of May 1986, the Berlin painter and art dealer Hans Pels-Leusden opened in a former upper-class home in the Fasanenstraße the privately directed Käthe-Kollwitz-Museum Berlin.

Four decades after the death of Käthe Kollwitz a permanent home for a major part of her complete works has been set up in the town where Käthe Kollwitz lived and worked for more than fifty years.

The museum is located in the former first private home built 1871 in Fasanenstraße. Destroyed during the Second World War, the building underwent a fundamental restoration during the 1980's.
