Jewish Museum Berlin

The Jewish Museum Berlin is Europe's largest Jewish museum. In both the historic old building and the new building created by the renowned architect Daniel Libeskind, visitors are invited on an exciting journey of discovery through German-Jewish history.

The exhibition tells the story of the Jews in Germany from the Middle Ages to the present day in five historical chapters and themed rooms. The 1700-year history of the Jews in Germany is not told in strict chronological order: The tour through the exhibition alternates between historical epochs and insights into Jewish topics beyond geographical and temporal boundaries. A variety of Jewish voices have their say in the permanent exhibition and show different and sometimes contradictory perspectives on historical and current events. What distinguishes the Jewish community? What perspectives do Jews have on political, social and cultural phenomena of their time? In addition to original objects, a variety of audiovisual media, virtual reality, art installations, interactive games and hands-on stations can be seen. In addition, there are regular special exhibitions that offer an insight into different aspects of Jewish art and culture. Opening hours: daily from 10:00-18:00
