Haus am Lützowplatz (Das)
From the abstract sculpture which stands outside the building to the futuristic steel stairway which leads up to the entrance, you can tell that this is an arty place. The oldest building in the area left standing after the War, Das Haus am Lützowplatz is a mixture of apartment house and city villa. It has generously sized rooms with high ceilings and polished wooden floor boards which are perfect for exhibitions. The nearby Bar am Lützowplatz and other cafes bring a bit of life to the otherwise gloomy square on the banks of Landwehrkanal .
