The ISS Symposium Gala dinner will be held at the Museum for Communication.

It was founded in 1872 as the first postal museum of the world. It was Postmaster General, Heinrich von Stephan, who initiated the building of a magnificent, representative building in Leipziger Strasse / Mauerstrasse from 1893 to 1897, which has housed the Museum from thereon. Since its opening, the Museum has lived through a chequered history, ranging from its closure during the two world wars and the damage by bombs, various stages of refurbishment, right up to the careful reconstruction based on modern aspects of monument preservation. At long last, it was opened as the Museum für Kommunikation Berlin on 17th March 2000.


The exclusive caterer for the museum is Sarah Wiener. For every occasion the team develops new ideas and their own creations.
