Opened in 1995 as an authentic Berlin artists’ project, the ‘Louise’ has developed into a hotel. Guests may choose from a total of 50 single rooms, double rooms and suites housed in a carefully restored, neoclassical building dating from 1825 and a new extension with an architecture from 2003. Over 50 artists have realised concepts specially designed for individual rooms of the hotel that set the mood for a visit to the museums or galleries in the art city of Berlin. The entire room is incorporated into an artist’s concept, including the furniture and any other accessories. En route to a room in the historical building, guests pass through a sequence of philosophical passages on the walls of the stairwell. The entire building is dedicated to art.
