Swiss Embassy in Berlin

Schweizerische Botschaft in Berlin

Swiss Embassy in Berlin The Swiss Embassy is located on the Spreebogen near the Federal Chancellery building. Apart from the Reichstag it is the only prewar building remaining in the area and dates from 1870. Used as an embassy from 1919 onwards, it survived the Second World War mainly due to the courageous actions of its staff.

With West Berlin's loss of capital status following the war, the building became Switzerland's Consulate General in what used to be a very lonely location. Following German reunification, a modern extension on the building's eastern side was added by Swiss architects Diener & Diener between 1998 and 2000, when it once again became an embassy.
