Berlin Kunstgewebemuseum

In 1868, Kunstgewerbemuseum, the Museum Of Applied Art, was originally dedicated to contemporary designs. However, it very soon took on a new role of displaying and housing a more diverse collection of fine European folk art, craft and industrial design from medieval times to the present.

It covers an area of approximately 7,000 square meters and is spread over four floors. Most periods and styles of applied art are well represented.

Contemporary arts and crafts are located on the bottom ground floor, the next floor displays mostly fine works, which were often commissioned and used by rich and noble families. This floor also includes many exquisite pieces from the Renaissance period. The top floor is dedicated to art collections from the Royal court, baroque and Rococo collections, exquisite furniture and other rare and important collections. The third floor is more functional and contains the information center.

Kunstgewerbemuseum particularly focuses on the craftsmanship of the Middle Ages. On display are items such as clothes, tapestries and embroideries, furniture, jewelry, silverware, porcelain and glass. There is also a brilliant collection of ecclesiastical items called the Guelph Treasure. One of the features is the baptismal font of Emperor Barbarossa, which showcases the advanced skills of goldsmiths of this period.
