The history of the city using a building as an example:on 135 pages, the architect and comic artist Sebastian Strombach tells how the former swamp area became what Berlin is today. With comic sequences and large-format city panoramas from the Ice Age to the present day, he focuses on the Berlin Palace, its architecture, symbolism and political significance over the centuries.

On the walk through time, readers get to know the eventful history of the house and its residents as well as the city in a funny, thoughtful and creative way. At the same time, the author describes the overarching historical events of the respective epoch and mixes well-known with lesser-known facts.

The black and white drawings are made with great attention to detail and are an unusual approach to the eventful history of the place.
