Bechstein-Höfe – A reminiscence of the past. Where once the world-famous company Bechstein produced its grand pianos and pianos, booming industries now reside. Communication technologies or TV productions are just two examples of the businesses located in this GSG courtyard in Berlin-Kreuzberg.
This spacious building complex was built between 1886 and 1907 for the grand piano and piano producer. Instruments were manufactured here until 1988. In remembrance of this traditional company, the distinctive five-story main building still displays its name. The metal-clad chimney of the former heating house is also prominently visible – artistically staged in the form of a “Drudenstern.”
