That's pretty neat! I imagine this is the DNB, not the SBB (the one is the Deutsche Nationalbibliothek which sits in... Frankfurt, I think?, the other the Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin, where we obviously were), or was that not clear from this passing reference?

It is the Federal German Archive (de: Bundesarchiv). It is located in Berlin.
