The Perfect Combination: Tradition and Modernity.
The rotunda of KRANZLER ECK is the stuff of legends. In the year 2000, it was augmented by a sensational architectural feat. Celebrated architect Helmut Jahn designed a new landmark.
He combined the time-honoured rotunda with a modern transverse building: a 16-storey office building with a curtain glass façade 60 metres tall, rising elegantly right behind Café Kranzler. A building like a beacon saying: West Berlin is back in the game!
The building “is one of Berlin’s local legends! The secret of its success? It kept reinventing itself: Bohemian hangout. Famous coffee house. Day-trip destination.”
