Located in up-market Dahlem and surrounded by beautifully restored 19th century villas, the Ruine der Künste doesn't quite fit in, with its environs. Instead of a pristine white facade, this particular villa has a peeling, reddish-brown facade dotted with shrapnel marks and bullet holes from the War. Only the wonderful garden can compete with the other palatial residences in this élite Berlin district. The Ruin of Arts is an interesting alternative to the art galleries in Mitte. The leafy green, upper middle class neighborhood may not be as hip as Mitte, but the art is just as eye-catching.
