Pictures and stories of a big city
The online portal on the city’s history
1000 photographs from the collections of the Berlin district museums and the Berlin City Museum provide a fascinating insight into the city’s history. On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of Greater Berlin, they tell of a city that was merged from cities, rural communities and manor districts by a parliamentary resolution in 1920. 150 thematic photo series show how the image of Berlin has changed from the Weimar Republic to the present day. They reflect the diversity of the faces of Berlin from the edge to the center, from the neighborhoods to the city center. 50 illustrated biographies of Berliners illustrate the social, cultural and political upheavals people in East and West have experienced. Visitors to the portal can make their personal Berlin visible by uploading their own photographs. In close cooperation between the Stadtmuseum Berlin and the Berlin district museums, 1000x Berlin has created an illustrated one-hundred-year history of the city, compact and digital.
