Unter den Linden 10
AN ELEGANT BUILDING WITH HISTORY
The Roemischer Hof is one of the few buildings along Berlin’ luxury street Unter den Linden that was not destroyed during World War II. In 2005, the building was restored according to historical architectural plans that date back as far as 1775. Architect Axtelm Frinken oversaw its transformation into a modern office building. Attractive glass was added to that part of its facade that was damaged during a bombing raid in World War II.
In addition to serving as the Grand Hotel de Rome—one of Berlin’s grandest hotels of its time—the building gained notoriety because of the Pannewitzbande’s bank heist in 1951. In 1989, a movie of the theft became the first coproduction of West and East Germany, starring Goetz George, Rolf Hoppe, and Otto Sander.
