Mies van der Rohe PavilionMy rating: 4 stars+ The German pavilion from the World’s Fair is a brilliant architectural work of its time! You can’t help but be amazed by the materials, marble and steel. And then there’s the “Barcelona chair”!
- 5 Euro are ok as the price of admission, but it could be a bit less, too.

And what's there to see?
The pavilion created by the German architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe in Barcelona in 1929 was unique in its time. After the World’s Fair, the pavilion was initially torn down nevertheless.
Between 1983 and 1986, however, the city of Barcelona had the pavilion reconstructed at the original site by the architects Cristian Cirici, Fernando Ramos and Ignasi de Solà-Morales, following the original plans. Nowadays, this is not a museum in the classic sense of the word. This is more about the architecture itself, the design of the interior and the terrace. However, you’ll also find a sculpture (made by Georg Kolbe) and some Bauhaus furniture here, such as the world famous Barcelona Chair.
