Altes Polizeipräsidium

Built in 1932 as Karstadt headquarters (reinforced concrete skeleton structure), the „Thousand Windows“ building proved too large for a department store and was taken over by the Reich Ministry of Finance in 1934. From 1948 it was the headquarters of the Berlin Police and was used by the GDR People’s Police and as a prison until the fall of the Wall in 1989.
1990 Filming for „The Lives of Others“.
