The original ambassador’s room, the beautiful auditorium, and lots of offices in a quirky office building. Have you always been curious about this iconic building? This is your chance to take a look. The American Embassy was designed by the famous Hungarian-American architect Marcel Breuer and has a unique architectural and content meaning. The national monument is an icon of post-war reconstruction and a symbol of ‘Pax Americana’. At the same time, the building is an important monument to perhaps the most influential cultural movement of the 20th century: Bauhaus. An institute that from 1919 to 1933 introduced a groundbreaking new vision of bringing together various art disciplines and technology.
