Humboldt University, Berlin: 17 reviews and 37 photos
The Humboldt University, nearly fifteen years after the fall of the Wall, is rapidly returning to its former academic glory after stagnating during the GDR period. In the past, the Humboldt saw figures as diverse as Marx and Engels (as students) and Einstein, and the Brothers Grimm (as staff members) pass through its halls.
You can wander into the Humboldt’s main hall and even go upstairs to the smaller libraries without anyone asking you where you are going. It’s quite a maze, and high in the building, under the roof, you’ll get lost in an amazing array of old books in many languages: it’s a collector’s dream!
