Information and its rapid presentation are the elementary pillars of the information age. Information and its competent, quick communication are also at the centre of every archive. Acquired, preserved, and gathered over centuries, information is available here on parchment and paper, as a map or plan, photo or film. Perhaps more than any other institutions, archives hold ready answers to the most diverse questions of the times. 

As the central state archive of the German capital, the Landesarchiv Berlin has the task of acquiring, preserving, and providing access to significant records of Berlin authorities and institutions from different eras, as well as important sources on the history of the city. It thus possesses an extraordinary abundance of unique documents on Berlin’s development, institutions, and residents. Our expert service strives to facilitate your full use of this multimedia wealth of information. Discover the possibilities of the Landesarchiv. Discover Berlin.
