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.
Starting in the 1970s and until 1990, the building was home to the highest court of the DDR (GDR).
The main entrance hall to Amtsgericht Mitte is over 30m high and features columns of alternating red and green sandstone. Its surface area is 1000 square meters and, with its detailed stair gates and stucco work, is a prime example of Art Nouveau.
