Forum Willy Brandt Berlin

The Forum Willy Brandt Berlin is a place of remembrance for the former Governing Mayor, Federal Chancellor and Nobel Peace Prize winner.

Freedom, peace, democracy and justice – these values and goals have driven Willy Brandt throughout his life. His contribution to reconciliation with Germany’s neighbours to the east, his commitment to the unification of Europe, his advocacy of German unity and his commitment to fighting hunger and poverty in the world are milestones in history. Many of the issues he dealt with are still burning issues today.

In the exhibition WILLY BRANDT at the Forum Willy Brandt Berlin you can discover the varied life of the social democrat, who was Nazi opponent, Governing Mayor of Berlin, Federal Chancellor, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate and one of the world’s leading politicians.


Exciting exhibits highlight the most important events and stages in the life of Willy Brandt. At the same time, his political activities tell the story of Germany’s turbulent history in the 20th century – from the Weimar Republic to German unity. Democracy, Europe and environmental protection are three policy areas Willy Brandt always advocated for. Keynote speeches from his time as chancellor illustrate the undiminished relevance of his thinking.

The educational and event programme covers a broad spectrum from historical topics to current political issues. Guided tours of the exhibition and workshops are aimed at registered individual visitors and groups. The event programme also includes book presentations, panel discussions and academic lectures.
