In 1898, the Reichspostmuseum opened as the first postal museum in the world. "Simply dignified style..." was how Kaiser Wilhelm II commented on the design at the time. Under Kaiser Wilhelm II, public buildings were supposed to be stately and reflect the German Empire's claim to power. This also applied to post office buildings. The opulent design of the Reichspostmuseum in Berlin's Mitte district is a prominent example.
