Everyday Life in Biedermeier Berlin
The new exhibition area “Berliner Salon” introduces you to friends of the Knoblauch family, including famous personalities such as architect Karl Friedrich Schinkel and scholars Wilhelm and Alexander von Humboldt.
The Raphael Cabinet
Two hundred years ago, Italian Renaissance artist Raffaelo Sanzio de Urbino, or Raphael for short (1483 – 1520), was already widely regarded as a genius of painting and reproductions of his works enjoyed widespread popularity. In-depth research has shown that Carl Knoblauch built a Raphael cabinet in his home in 1835 and furnished its walls with copper engravings by the famous painter and architect. This room has now been faithfully restored to its original state.
