The Umweltbundesamt (Federal Environment Agency) is an architectural highlight, hidden behind the Wörlitzer Bahnhof (Wörlitz Station - a former station which serves now as an office building). This composition of glass, steal and wood was made by the architects Sauerbruch and Hutton. It appears outwardly that the building has no rectangular corner. And indeed, there's neither a corner in the atrium nor outside.

The building is not open for private visit but guided tours can be booked.

Address: Wörlitzer Platz 1

Review Helpfulness: 2 out of 5 stars
