The Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities (formerly the Prussian Academy of Sciences) is situated at Gendarmenmarkt in the heart of Berlin. With its interdisciplinary and international association of scholars and approximately 250 staff members, it is the largest non-universitarian research institute with a profile in the humanities in the region of Berlin-Brandenburg.
The building, which is today frequented by scholars from around the world, was originally built in 1902/03 for the Prussian Maritime Trade Company (Preußische Seehandlung), the later Prussian State Bank. Its historical banking hall was reconstructed for the 300th anniversary of the Academy and expanded into a conference and event centre that officially opened in 2002.
The Conference and Event Centre of the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities is spacious and equipped with all the latest conveniences. It is primarily used for scientific conferences and lectures, though also for receptions which require a prestigious setting.
For basic organizational matters and catering, the Centre maintains a professional and reliable service team with years of experience in supervising diverse events.
