Northern Ireland Embassies and Consulates

Representations of Great Britain in Germany

Northern Ireland is a self-governing part of Great Britain and is therefore represented by the “Embassy of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland”.
The current embassy building was built on the site of the old British embassy, ​​which was damaged by bombs during the war and completely destroyed by fire after the war. The remains were later removed by the GDR authorities, and the property was fallow until 1998. The plans for today’s embassy building come from the architecture firm Michael Wilford & Partners, London and Stuttgart, which had previously won a competition. The embassy was officially inaugurated on July 18, 2000 by Queen Elizabeth II. The building is located at the beginning of Wilhelmstrasse in the immediate vicinity of the Brandenburg Gate. This part of the street is closed to motor vehicle traffic for safety reasons.
