Käthe-Kollwitz-Museum Berlin


At the end of May 1986, the Berlin painter and art dealer

Hans Pels-Leusden, who died in April 1993, 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 thanks to this

generous donation in the town where Käthe Kollwitz lived and worked

for more than fifty years.


The Käthe-Kollwitz-Museum Berlin is located in the former first private

home built 1871 in Fasanenstraße. Destroyed during the

2nd World War, the building underwent a fundamental restauration

during the nineteeneighties.


Neighboring the museum is the Literaturhaus with café. Easy direct

access through a special passage way connecting the museum´s

garden with the garden of the café.
