Art and architecture in the buildings of the Bundesbank

The various locations of the Deutsche Bundesbank have different artistic focuses which contribute to the depth and variety of its art collection. The Central Office and several of the Regional Offices have sizeable holdings of regional artists' works that testify to the Bank’s ties with a particular location, as well as a wealth of pictures that offer a rich source of art for display in conference rooms and staff members' offices.

In addition, the architecture of many of the buildings themselves is remarkable. For instance, the Regional Office in Berlin and Brandenburg is based in a listed building, while the Regional Office in Hesse is located in a harmonious post-modern ensemble of buildings.

The Bundesbank is currently working on a series of brochures entitled "Architektur und Kunst" [Architecture and art] which provides information on the Bank's buildings. These brochures may be ordered or downloaded free of charge.
