Die Replik des Humboldt-Schreibtisches können Sie aktuell im Restaurant ‚Wilhelm’ im Humboldt Forum in Berlin erleben. Schlossplatz 1, 10178 Berlin
Alexander von Humboldt’s desk was thought to be lost before it was rediscovered in the Observatoire de Paris (Paris Observatory) in 2016. On the occasion of the great exhibition celebrating Humboldt’s 250th birthday at the German Historical Museum in Berlin, the desk was exhibited for the first time in 2019.
Now – another three years later – Sebastian Windisch is making the timeless beauty and inspirational power of the object accessible to enthusiasts. The trained carpenter and architect from Berlin has precisely replicated Humboldt’s desk in meticulous detail. The first replicas became available for purchase in autumn 2022.
