1. Berlin: Jewish Museum Berlin Entrance Ticket

Let the largest Jewish museum in Europe impress you with its symbolic architecture and exceptional exhibitions. Discover how the zig-zag-shaped building designed by Daniel Libeskind creates its own language for Jewish history in Germany, with slanting walls, sharp angles, and gaping voids. The new core exhibition “Jewish Life in Germany: Past & Present” spans from the beginning of the early middle ages to the present day. During the chronological tour, a large space is dedicated to National Socialism and the time since the end of WWII. The exhibition alternates between historical periods and cultural insights. What is sacred in Judaism? Is there specific Jewish art? How do people practice Judaism in today’s society? Alongside the treasures of the museum’s collection including everyday objects and art, there are video and audio installations. There are also interactive stations that provide surprising insights. Special Exhibition (ticket required): From January 25th to May 1st, 2023 is showing hosting a special exhibition. The JMB’s Paris Magnétique. 1905-1940 is the first large-scale show in Germany dedicated to Jewish artists of the “School of Paris.” In ten chapters and around 120 works, it traces the ways in which migrant, often marginalized, positions within the Parisian avant-garde have shaped present-day ideas of Western modernist art. Visitors will see works by both celebrated and less well-known artists, including Marc Chagall, Amedeo Modigliani, Chana Orloff, Sonia Delaunay, Jacques Lipchitz, and others. The museum is located centrally in the vibrant district of Berlin-Kreuzberg and is within walking distance from Checkpoint Charlie. With your JMB ticket, you are eligible to receive reduced-rate admission to the neighboring Berlinische Galerie on the day of your museum visit and the two following days. The Berlinische Galerie is only a 5 min stroll away from the JMB.

il museo è molto caratteristico e spiega molte cose riguardanti gli ebrei che non tutti sanno, dalle tradizioni e dalla cultura fino alla creazione e distruzione dei campi di concentramento. Esperienza molto toccante e particolare, consigliato soprattutto perché è gratuito, si possono lasciare le giacche e gli effetti personali presso il guardaroba (anch'esso gratuito) e la guida interattiva scaricabile sul proprio smartphone tramite app permette di capire appieno ogni elemento che si trova all'interno del museo.

This is an unexpectedly amazing museum. Some of the exhibits are quite unique and thought provoking among the classic exhibits of world history. Plan for a minimum of 2 hours. There is a cafe and a coat room, so it’s a very comfortable experience. A+++

Excellent way to learn more about the history! I spent about 90 minutes there however more or less time can be spent there whilst still seeing everything. Would definitely recommend!!

It was great visit. A lot of information and very interesting. The story the ordinary people during holocaust time was very sad and emotional. The walk of fame was also very nice.

Excellent and moving visit to the museum It is a definite must on your trip
