Victoria Versicherung (Kreuzberg)

The builing is from the 1913 by the architect Wilhelm Walther for the Victoria Assurance. Seriously damaged in the WWII, In the 1950s the building was temporarily used by the Kremlin in order to edit the documents necessary for the export of machinery and equipment to Russia.
Today the building is among other things a media college and different associations.The courtyard is a bit hidden, but really beautiful in its baroque style.
