Two years ago I visited Berlin, and I went to the Dahlem museums, which are located far from the city center.

I noticed they said the exhibition will be moved to the Humboltdforum.

This building appears to be too small to house all the exhibitions I saw there on their current location.

What gives?

Will a full ethnographic museum open on the new location?

Will it have just some highlight pieces that draw most crowds while the rest stays in their current location?

The Dahlem campus shows it isn't exactly new, but most of the rooms I visited look neat, and the expansive open-plan rooms make a good fit for the big items like Polynesian houses or boats.

Will they have all that space on the Humboltdforum?
Welcome to the forum!

There will be actually even more space in the Humboldt-Forum, than there is now in the Dahlem museums. The directors of the museum said, here they will be able to show even many of the objects, that were hidden in depot for many years. The Humboldt forum has much more floor space, than it might seem at first sight.

Really?

It looks smaller.

If it has a larger area, the better then.

The collection of the museum there is outstanding!

What is that?

What is that under construction at the corner of the Humboldt Forum site that is closest to the river right there at the Schloss Bridge? It is separate from the main construction site and, from the aerial photograph, looks like it might be the entrance to an underground parking garage. Can any of you clarify this? Thanks.

roof cafe visible from the street level

Sad to see the roof cafe growing up..., now you can see it from street level.

First I thought that maybe it disappears behind the roof.

Parking for the new Humboldt Forum?

Does the plan for the new Humboldt Forum include an underground parking garage? It looks like it would, if it is going to be used at least in part for what we in America would call "a convention center." While I realize that public transportation is used more extensively in European countries than in the U.S., not providing for parking for the new center would seem to make it a real challenge to park anywhere else around the new building there in central Berlin.

There is a small misunderstanding - the Dahlem Museum will be renovated, of witch it needs badly, and improved against river floods. Dahlem will stay open. Humbold Forum is an extra Museum for Asian, African, Pacific and South American History! Also it will have some state of the art restoration workshop in it`s space.
The schloss works perfect, since it is located right next to the Museum island, witch are five museums. Dahlem was build for West Berlin. Next to Dahlem are five more museums. The west Berlin centre. Museum island is the east Berlin centre

Very good question! Not only the project is gigantic - See yourself -
24 000 sq m2 - 264 000 sq ft Museum
4 000 sq m2 - 44 000 sq ft Library
1 000 sq m2 - 11 000 sq ft University of Humboldt exhibition space
11 000 sq m2 - 121 000 sq ft Congress space, Workshop, Stores, Restaurant...

But the basement is not for cars.....
Fun Fact: Parts of the basement are of a monastery from the 13th century..

But the cars? I have heard rumors....

I have heard rumors that the building on the left could be used for 1000`s of cars! The building used to be the Marstall - means it was for the Kings Horses and carriages. It has tons of space. It is also empty! Needs a renovation. The river facade is sinking. It also has ( it`s a secret ) a secret tunnel to the Staats rath building on the right. Which was build in the 1950/1960 and used to be Germany's "white house" from 1998 to 2002 for Chancellor Schroeder. Anyway, there is another secret tunnel from that building to the Schloss under construction. People can move under the surface back and forth. Another secret tunnel is underneath the former Kaiser memorial for Germany's reunification of 1871, build 1896. You can drive into the Schloss basement by boat! It`s already there! There is also a new metro under construction with a station right at the Schloss front!
And the Dahlem Museum also gets a 200 million facelift But who cares about that of the trek project?
Many tourists don't know: Berlin has five centres. The Dahlem complained, seriously, that it was of the path for tourists. One reason for it`s moving.

The " Neuer Marstall " (New Stables) is not empty. It's home of the "Hochschule für Musik Hanns Eisler" (Hanns Eisler Academy of Music), which is one of the leading music conservatories in Europe. After renovations in 2005, the building became the home of the Hanns Eisler Academy of Music and the Berlin City Library. More restoration work has continued since 2007.

Using a baroque building for a car park... Seriously, only an American could come up with this.

The Schlüterhof will be one of a kind! An urban masterpiece space in the making.

Hi Steve, no, not at all. The closest to this would be the Neumarkt garage you can spot to the right here, but as you can see, it's not using the built up space at all. Germans (or Europeans in general) would never allow a pre-industrial times building to be used for car parking (or a reconstruction of such). Look at the crap that was done to Detroit's Michigan Theater, gosh! It hurts.

Planning for Parking

I am not suggesting that anyone build a parking lot into a historic building. However, the Humboldt Forum is really just modern building wrapped in a historic facade. Planning for parking would only seem logical to me.

Before you say that this is not a European thing, what about Max Joseph Platz in Munich. My understanding is that they built an underground parking garage there with minimal distraction from the site and that certainly is a historic location in that city.

About Parking..., you should go by train or Bus, so Museum Iland and Boulevard Unter den Linden is for walking not for parking.

About dome construction:

They start with the steelconstruction this spring.
