Zeughausmesse 2015 Decorative Arts Fair

From December 10 to 13 makers present design, craft and art at Deutsches Historisches Museum in Berlin

The Zeughaus fair, which takes place in Schlüterhof from December 10 to 13, 2015, is the most important event of the AKBB (Professional Association of the Applied Arts in Berlin-Brandenburg), which was founded in 1877 as the first association for German crafts in Berlin. A jury chose circa 85 exhibitors to show their work at the fair in 2015. “We’ve devoted even greater attention toward assuring high quality this year,” say Friederike Maltz and Rainer Wiencke, who are responsible for the fair’s organization for the first time.
