Altes museum Berlin

Altes Museum

The museum, a work of Berlin’s most famous architect Karl Friedrich Schinkel, was built in 1830. It was the first of five museum to be erected on this island, later to be called the Museums’ Island, downstream from where the medieval town of Cölln and the roots of Berlin lie, opposite the Royal Palace that disappeared after the war. The antiques collection is distributed between the Pergamon and the Old Museum, the latter focussing on amphora and sculptures. It also has a remarkable collection of jewellery.

Neues Museum Berlin

The New Museum opened its doors again on 17 October 2009. This major work of art, museum and technical history of the 19th century was built according to plans by Friedrich August Stüler. It was badly damaged during the World War II and was lavishly restored under the direction of British star architect David Chipperfield. The Egyptian Museum and Papyrus Collection and the Museum of Prehistory and Early History with objects from the Collection of Classical Antiquities find their new home here. The Berlin Egyptian Museum possesses one of the most important collections worldwide comprising also many objects from the Amarna period (around 1,340 AC). The bust of Pharaoh Akhn-aton's wife Nefertiti is probably most spectacular exhibit. Other remarkable objects are the portrait bust of Queen Teje and the "Berlin Green Head".

Pergamonmuseum Berlin

The ensemble of the Museums’ Island was completed by the construction of this museum (1910 - 1930) which became the completed most popular of all! Under one roof, the Pergamon Museum houses some of the finest collections worldwide, including the archaeological collections of the Greek and Roman antiques section with the Pergamon altar (closed until 2019), the Middle and Near East section with the Ishtar gate from ancient Babylon as well as the museum of Islamic Art.

Guide Jean-Pierre AndreaeNeues museum

Guided tour : WORLD HERITAGE MUSEUM ISLAND

Over the course of this approximately two-hour walk on Berlin’s Museum Island, which has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1999, I will explain to you how you can trace the different socio-political developments from the architecture of the individual buildings and indeed also the attitude of the respective rulers. The walk, therefore, looks at architecture as a mirror of social realities and change. The tour begins with an explanation of the reconstruction and intended use of the Berlin City Palace as the future Humboldt-Forum. There then follow two short talks as an aside – on columns (development since ancient Greek / Roman times, including the function of classical order attributed to them) and on the creation of the museum genre (the purpose of such establishments up to the present day). This provides the background to the tour’s main areas of emphasis outlined above. The main focus of the guided tour is then a walk passing the individual buildings in the order in which they were built to illustrate the architecture as a mirror of social realities and developments.

Here you can find all city tours of Jean-Pierre Andreae

Berlin Museums - Collection of Art

Hamburger Bahnhof Berlin has diverse and very exciting art museums, the reason being Berlin's history; "academic" purchases by the kings of Prussia, others since 1871, when Berlin became the capital of the Second Reich, with the desire to surpass other countries, and of course, with the division of Berlin, the competition of systems led to new museums. Berlin was also a cradle of artistic renewal a century ago.

Our suggestions for visiting the museums :
• Museum card for 3 days for 30 museums at 29 € each - you can order it from home visitberlin
• The majority of Berlin's museums have very good audio guides in various languages
• To round off your visit to the museums, visit the Scheunenviertel, an international centre of art galleries. Also with a city tour.

Alte Nationalgalerie

Alte National Galerie

Following the impulse of the Frankfurt national parliament, an artist movement began to call for a museum dedicated to German art. The museum was built from 1866 to 1876 according to plans by Schinkel’s disciple Friedrich August Stüler. The monumental statue in front of the building represents Prussian king Frederick William IV who died in 1860. The gallery’s collection spans the time from the German classical period to early modern painting, comprising romantic, impressionist and expressionist style. Besides the works of famous German painters like Menzel and Liebermann, French impressionists like Monet, Cézanne, Renoir and Manet are also represented. The picture is completed by the sculptures, featuring names like Schadow and Rodin. Photo: © Staatliche Museen zu Berlin / Maximilian Meisse

Hamburger Bahnhof

Hamburger Bahnhof

One of the world’s finest collection of contemporary art is to be found in a former railway station building of the Berlin-Hamburg trail, closed down in 1884. It was opened as a museum in 1996, after a thorough rehabilitation and extension directed by Berlin architect Joseph Paul Kleihues (1933-2004). On a space of 13,000 m² you will find anything created in the field of contemporary art of the last four decades: sculpture, design, video, music. Of course, artists like Warhol (Mao’s portrait), Rauschenberg, Twombly and Lichtenstein are also represented in the exhibition. Another good reason to visit the “Hamburg Station”: Since September 2004, the extraordinary private collection of Friedrich Christian Flick, with an exhibition space of 3,000 m², is also housed on the ground of the museum and will remain there for the next seven years. In the vicinity, the new Berlin main railway station has just opened. So now it is only a 5 minutes walk to the museum, from station to station.

Neue Nationalgalerie

In complete renovation by David Chiperfield until 2020.
In a showpiece building of modern architecture, designed by famous architect Bauhaus Mies van der Rohe (1886-1969), the National Collections are housed, mainly by artists from the first decades of the 20th century (Art Nouveau is housed in the Alte Nationalgalerie or in the Bröhan Museum), but also by contemporary artists, in order to look at the parallels between these epochs from a new perspective. One of the strengths of the museum is the German Expressionism of the artists of the group "Die Brücke" such as Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Max Beckmann, Otto Dix or George Grosz. There are also artist groups like "COBRA", "Spur" and "Zero" as well as "Informal" or "New Realism".. Photo: © Staatliche Museen zu Berlin / Thomas Bruns

German Historical Museum

Zeughaus Berlin DHM

The German Historic Museum consists of two buildings: The Baroque Armoury, the oldest and probably finest structure on the Linden avenue, which houses the permanent exhibition and a modern extension, work of the famous American architect L.M. Pei, where temporary exhibitions on topics related to German or European history of the 20th century are shown. The aim of the permanent exhibition in the Berlin Armoury, which used to be a military museum at different stages of its history, is educational, but on a scale that has not been attempted before. More than 8,000 objects illustrate German history, starting from the first century AC until the present day.

The various audiovisual information points provide a better understanding of the history of the division of Germany. Two buildings are also used as a documentation and information centre with a platform to better understand the tragedy of the Berlin division. A must for everyone interested in the history of the Wall and the division. In the Topography of Terror and the East Side Gallery you will also see a section of the Berlin Wall.

Jewish Museum

Jewish Museum

Although it probably will never be put into reality, Daniel Libeskind’s plan for the new towers on Ground Zero in New York has gained some fame But Berlin’s Jewish Museum is really the architect’s masterpiece. The building already attracted numerous visitors even when the rooms were still empty. Today it houses an excellent exhibition about the long and rich history of Jews in Germany whose presence goes back as far as to the 4th century BC. Since its inauguration in 2001 the Museum has become widely popular with Germans as well as tourists from abroad.
People from all over the world contributed to the collection of mementos by donating their personal documents and objects thus adding life and enabling a more personal approach to the bare facts. In Berlin, Jewish Families played an important part in the development of the city. Most of the times, relations between Jews and Germans were peaceful, until the rise of anti-Semitic ideology and its horrific consequences. The years of the Third Reich, when the Jewish population was diminished from 170,000 in 1930 to only 6,000 at the end of WWII, are also reflected in the exhibition. A museum not to be missed!

Topography of Terror

Topography of Terror

On this ground lay the headquarters of central institutions of the nationals-socialist oppressive machinery. In the immediate neighbourhood of Hitler's New Chancellery the Gestapo, SD, SS and the Security Authority of the Reich were located between 1933 and 1945. After the war, only a few ruins remained of the buildings, forgotten in the shadow of the wall. Much later, the foundations of the former prison were excavated, the basement cells where prisoners had been questioned and tortured now lying bare. In the 1980s, a photo and text exhibiton was planned in order to show the history of the place where "germanisation" and mass extermination were planned. Just behind the "topography", lining Niederkirchnerstraße, there is a surviving segment of the Berlin wall.

Humboldt Forum

Ceremonial opening shortly (2020) :
Humboldt Forum - Museum of Ethnology

Like Paris with its Musée des Arts Premiers (Quai Branly), Berlin will soon (2020) have a new major cultural institution for ethnography, the Humboldt-Forum. It is located in Berlin Palace, which was completely rebuilt (on the outside) following the model of the Palace blown up by the GDR in 1950. The Ethnological Museum was already internationally known, but far away from the city centre and therefore not particularly visited by tourists. Also the colonial history is presented in the museum, since different objects originate from this time. We will keep you up to date on our LatLon pages, also with guided tours, which we will organize. Photo: © SHF / Architekt: Franco Stella mit FS HUF PG

German Museum of Technology

German Museum of TechnologyBerlin

Close to Potsdamer Platz, this technical cultural forum has its unmistakable location: at the Gleisdreieck on the site of the former Anhalter Güterbahnhof. The large museum park with wind and water mills, smithy and brewery is a natural oasis in the middle of the city. The contemporary architecture of the new building for shipping and aviation blends into the historical site, which has grown since 1874, to form an exciting unity. With the "raisin bomber" on the façade, the extension building sets an important urban accent. The German Museum of Technology conveys a multi-faceted spectrum of old and new technology and its manifold references to the cultural and everyday history of mankind. With its daily demonstrations, visitor activities and guided tours, it is an interactive place of learning and experience. An extensive technical-historical library and the historical archive complete the offer. Text: © SDTB / Foto: Clemens Kirchner

Bauhaus-Archiv

Bauhaus Berlin museum

The museum with its characteristic silhouette was built after plans of Walter Gropius, founder of the Bauhaus. It is also a research centre for the Bauhaus movement, definitely 20th century’s most influential school of design. The archive, originally founded in Darmstadt in 1960, moved to Berlin in 1971. Although many famous architects, like Mies van der Rohe whose New National Gallery is just around the corner, emerged from the Bauhaus, it was not intended to be a school of architecture. The goal was to form a new type of artist beyond academic specialisation. Famous painters like Kandinsky and Klee were among the members. According to the ideas of the Bauhaus, the distinction between fine and applied arts, including handcraft which was regarded as the base of any art, should disappear. Besides the permanent exhibition which includes objects from all Bauhaus-promoted branches like ceramics, metalwork, furniture, photography and, of course, painting and architecture. There are also temporary exhibitions.

Guide Jean-Pierre AndreaeNeues museum

Guided tour in Berlin : MUSEUM ISLAND

Over the course of this approximately two-hour walk on Berlin’s Museum Island, which has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1999, I will explain to you how you can trace the different socio-political developments from the architecture of the individual buildings and indeed also the attitude of the respective rulers. The walk, therefore, looks at architecture as a mirror of social realities and change. The tour begins with an explanation of the reconstruction and intended use of the Berlin City Palace as the future Humboldt-Forum. There then follow two short talks as an aside – on columns (development since ancient Greek / Roman times, including the function of classical order attributed to them) and on the creation of the museum genre (the purpose of such establishments up to the present day). This provides the background to the tour’s main areas of emphasis outlined above. The main focus of the guided tour is then a walk passing the individual buildings in the order in which they were built to illustrate the architecture as a mirror of social realities and developments.

Charlottenburg Palace

Palace Charlottenburg

Most of the historic monuments of Prussian history lie in the city centre which formerly belonged to East Berlin. The palace of Charlottenburg is the finest exception. It may seem difficult to imagine that the city of Berlin did not reach yonder the Brandenburg Gate until the beginning of the 20th century. Charlottenburg was an independent and wealthy town, owing its origin to the construction of a summer residence for the elector Frederick III around the year 1700. After he had become king (Frederick I) the structure was amplified and, in 1705, it was given the name of his late wife Sophie-Charlotte. The ensemble was extended under his successors, Frederick the Great (II) in particular. It was seriously damaged by bombings in 1943 and almost pulled down after the end of the war. Luckily, reconstruction was agreed and nowadays we can tell it was worthwhile. You should take your time for a visit of the palace and the gardens, kept partly in French Baroque, partly in English style. Have a look at the chambers of Frederick I and Queen Sophie Charlotte and the Knobelsdorff wing where Frederick II used to lodge.
