Zille Museum

Heinrich Zille (1858–1929), Honorary Citizen of Berlin and member of the Berlin Academy of Arts, was among the most beloved artists in the city. His drawings and graphic art depicting life in Berlin's cellar flats and back courtyards are still highly popular today. His images provide an unvarnished look at the situation in working districts during the "Kaiserzeit" era (1871–1918) and the 1920s, providing invaluable glimpses into the history of Berlin.
On the initiative of his great-grandson, Hein-Jörg Preetz-Zille, the Heinrich Zille Gesellschaft (Heinrich Zille Society) was founded in 1999 with the goal of creating a museum for the artist's work in Berlin. In 2002, the Zille Museum in Berlin's Nikolaiviertel was opened and is currently funded exclusively by private means and by the Heinrich Zille Gesellschaft.
After a comprehensive refurbishment and redesign, the museum was re-opened in 2007 with a new exhibition and an expanded space. In addition to original drawing and lithographs, the exhibition also features photographs by Heinrich Zille as well as his letters alongside an array of newspapers and books in which his drawings were published.
