About Us

The online portal „1000x Berlin“ - pictures and stories of a city

is a cooperation project planned and implemented by employees of the Berlin regional museums and the foundation Stiftung Stadtmuseum Berlin to mark the 100th anniversary of the founding of Greater Berlin.

The selected annotated photo series of the online portal show how Berlin and its districts have changed over the past hundred years. From the perspective of everyday and social history, it illustrates how Berlin's current diversity has evolved.

With this joint project, the regional museums and the Stadtmuseum provide insights into their collections and archives and present photographs in new contexts. With the portal, they offer users the opportunity to inform themselves online about the eventful Berlin history - from the city of millions to particular neighbourhoods. At the same time, Berlin people are invited to upload their photographs to the platform in order to tell their own stories.
