Berlin Travel Tip:
Die Pyramide (The Pyramid) is a high-rise building built in 1994/95 and located in the Berlin Borough of Marzahn at the Rhinstraße / Landsberger Allee intersection. The office building and adjacent outbuildings have a combined floor space of 43,800 square metres. It was built by Düren-based real estate company Fundus-Gruppe for about 145 million Euros. Official completion date was 17 January 1995.
The 100-metre-high, double-wing main building has 23 floors and is on the basis of its architecture, which has integrated into the truly ordinary-looking building is a pyramid-glass facade. The pyramid itself acts as an oversized Chronometer. On the upper floors of the west facade of the main building are situated in green light strips hours and minutes. The pyramid-like glass facade on the north facade includes the display of seconds (blue light strips, each per seconds left and the right of the glass over a lamp). Every hour on the minute is emitted from the tip of a flash of light. The pyramid is considered Europe's largest clock. (The clock was out of service from early 2006 until December 2007.)
