About

Wilmina offers three new spaces at one unique location. On Kantstraße 79 in Berlin Charlottenburg, a listed ensemble consisting of a former courthouse and a women’s prison was transformed, expanded and reprogrammed by Grüntuch Ernst Architekten.

Under family-run management, the former courthouse came to life as a space for art and culture – Amtsalon. Wilmina Hotel and its restaurant Lovis welcome their guests in the former prison, sheltered by lush gardens and interflowing courtyards.

History

In 1896 the criminal court and the associated prison were built as free-standing structures by the architects Adolf Bürckner and Eduard Fürstenau.

The front building was used as a lay judge’s court with four departments; later it housed the estate administration, the State Institute for Chemistry and, most recently, the Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf land registry.

The prison was also part of the turbulent history of the German judiciary for decades. After the prison was closed in 1985, the building was used as an archive for the land registry.
