Wittenbergplatz Berlin 2017


The United Buddy Bears – The Minis, 1m tall variations of the sculptures in the unifying international United Buddy Bears exhibition, are shown on the Berlin square Wittenbergplatz from 4th July until 14th August. Right in the heart of the City West, the bears are communicating the message of living together in peace and harmony to Berliners and visitors from all over the world and take them on a journey around the globe. The bears are standing together “hand in hand”, forming a circle around the fountain in the southern part of the square.

Every sculpture of this exhibition represents a country of the United Nations, its people and culture, and was designed and painted by an artist of this respective country.

The exhibition takes place under the motto of the United Buddy Bears:


"We have to get to know each other better ...
... it makes us understand one another better,
trust each other more, and live together more peacefully."

The exhibition can be visited around the clock. Admission is free.

On 4th July, the exhibition was opened by its initiators, Eva and Klaus Herlitz. Angelika Schöttler, District Mayor of Tempelhof-Schöneberg and patron of the exhibition, also spoke with great warmth about this Buddy Bear project and several others. The launch was an amazing experience for children and adults from Berlin and for visitors of the German capital. More than 30 artists from all over the world were also present at the event. By applying the individual designs to the tall and smaller bear sculptures, they have played a very significant role for this unique project.


We thank all the supporters of this project and especially the company Haberling!
