Victoria building


Here's a look at the former headquarters of Victoria Versicherung in Berlin. How fantastic it must have been to walk through such a stately doorway on your way to work back in the old days.


Here's a closer look at the details. They just don't make them like this anymore! It's Tuesday, and you'll find more treasures here.

  3. Certainly is a magnificent door. But what was the building used for in the "good ol' days"?

    1. Victoria was (and still is) an insurance company.
      This building no longer houses their headquarters, but is shared by several companies.

  10. Thanks for the info, Hal. Should have guessed, I guess. I mean who always has the most money other than insurance companies? ­čśç

  14. Amazingly ornate and beautiful; they sure don't make 'em like that anymore! Was it named after the British Queen? You are still in Berlin, right?
