Villa Schöningen

A private museum has been installed in Villa Schöningen, which was built from 1843-45 by Ludwig Persius, architect to the King of Prussia. Located adjacent to the Glienicke Bridge, hence the former boundary between the American and the Soviet sector, it was through the exchange of spies, followed with worldwide interest, that the bridge became an internationally famous symbol of German division and the Cold War.
The permanent display galleries house a historical exhibition on the story of the Glienicke Bridge during the Cold War. In the exhibition the horror of totalitarian regimes is made perceptible.
In addition to the permanent exhibition on German history in the Cold War, Villa Schöningen will host temporary exhibitions of contemporary art. The idea is to show art, which deals with issues related to the place, such as the Cold War, German division and reunification, 1989, totalitarianism, democracy and freedom.
The museum provides in addition a cafe and a beer garden.
