Amtsgericht Mitte in Berlin is a local district court. The building ensemble, at the time the second largest in Berlin, was designed by Paul Thoemer, Rudolf Mönnich and Otto Schmalz and built between 1896 and 1904. The central hall with its detailed stair gates and stucco work is a prime example of Art Nouveau.
Starting in the 1970s and until 1990, the building was home to the highest court of the DDR (GDR).
