The Berghof Foundation is based in the Berghof Center, in Berlin, Germany. Beyond that, the Foundation also maintains a branch office in Tübingen, located in the South of Germany, as well as project offices in a number of countries, depending on project requirements.

The Berghof Center

The Foundation’s headquarters is the Berghof Center, located in Berlin, the political centre of Germany. Not far from the premises of the Free University Berlin in the district of Dahlem, the building has been hosting Foundation projects since 1971. Today, it provides space for the executive offices of the Berghof Foundation, as well as for the majority of our administrative, research and peace support staff. The Berghof Center runs an in-house library, specialising in literature related to conflict transformation. The library is accessible to the public upon request.

Georg Zundel Haus

The Foundation maintains a branch office in Tübingen, the hometown of Professor Dr. Georg Zundel, located in the South of Germany. Named in honour of its founder, the Georg Zundel Haus has been hosting peace education staff since 2002. The bright and spacious building has a large meeting room, allowing the institute to host seminars, workshops, expert discussions, presentations and professional gatherings. The Georg Zundel Haus also contains a library specialised in peace education, as well as an extensive media collection.

Project Offices

Depending upon requirements, project offices may be considered in other countries, based on project needs and upon request of our partners.
