The Bertelsmann Stiftung in Berlin - Where things happen

The Bertelsmann Stiftung has had a permanent office in Berlin since October 2019. The newly constructed building is located at Werderscher Markt, close to the Federal Foreign Office and Humboldt Forum, in the historic center of the German capital. The new premises are available to the foundation’s employees who have work to attend to in Berlin. “Weisse Liste,” a Bertelsmann Stiftung subsidiary, is also located in the new building.

The Bertelsmann Stiftung wants to use its new premises to promote and maintain its dialogue with partners and institutions in Berlin. The modern building offers space for workshops and discussions. The ground floor serves as a meeting place where guests can learn more about the history of the Bertelsmann Stiftung and the work it does. “Through our projects, we have been engaged on behalf of society for over 40 years,” says Liz Mohn, vice-chairwoman of the Bertelsmann Stiftung Executive Board. “We therefore have an ongoing dialogue with representatives of academia, civil society, business and politics. We want to use our new premises in Berlin to further develop our partnerships and cooperative projects in the capital. At the same time, Gütersloh is and will remain the Bertelsmann Stiftung’s primary location.”
