About
us


 
Since May 2009 NICHE Art and Architecture Tours has been opening up new Berlin perspectives for art and architecture lovers from all over the world. NICHE Berlin is the brainchild of art historians Stefanie Gerke and Nele Heinevetter as well as architect and architectural historian Katharina Beckmann. Today Niche Berlin employs a multidisciplinary team of art historians, architects, heritage conservators and artists.


Review
& Press

„Madame-Redakteur Rüdiger von Naso und die Fotografin Silke Weinsheimer folgten Niche an Orte, an denen jungen Künstlern eine erste Chance gegeben wird, und zu einer Architektur, die man erst einmal entdecken muss. Und waren hingerissen von Charme, Intelligenz und (Insider-)Wissen der drei, die perfekt moderierten, auf jede Frage eine Antwort wussten und anregende Begegnungen ermöglichten. Spielerisch und mit Humor“
Madame (Juli 2010) "Lieber ein bißchen intimer"

„If you want to explore galleries like Cruise&Callas, Streetart in Kreuzberg, the Haubrok Collection on Strausberger Platz or the Arno Brandelhuber house, Niche's tours are tailored to fit your knowledge, schedule and special requests “

„Les trois jeunes Berlinoises de Niche proposent un tour à la découverte des endroits où sont exposés de jeunes artistes - encore - méconnus.“

Hinter den
Vögeln

In October 2014, we moved into our new NICHE Berlin Headquarters in the district of Wedding. You will now find our office and our new project space Hinter den Vögeln in the former flower shop on the premises of the extensive cemetery St. Elisabeth II. With its large corner windows, it will serve as an exhibition and event space to which we will invite artists, architects, curators and scientists with projects that inspire us.
