Large, massive, baroque, beautiful! That is how the Zeughaus (armoury) in Berlin looks like. Therein is the Deutsches Historisches Museum, which presents the 1500-year history of Germany in the European context in a permanent exhibition. Along a tour, you can marvel at 7000 objects on two floors, which show you the interactions between the political developments in the individual European States as well as cultural and historical relations.
In addition to the permanent exhibition in the Zeughaus, changing special exhibitions are held in the adjacent exhibition hall. The 2003 built new construction impresses with architectural contrast to the Zeughaus and presented to you on four floors formative events, developments and facets of German history. In the courtyard with a glazed roof, you can watch the masks by Andreas Schlüter. Impressive and absolutely worth seeing!
Museum for kids
In addition, the youngest visitors of the Deutsches Historisches Museum in Berlin have the opportunity to discover the museum off their own bat. For children, the museum offers a discoverer bag that is packed with magnifying glass, binoculars, compass and discoverer book. So, the children playfully explore the history itself. For one day, the little ones can be the big ones.
The Deutsches Historisches Museum has something for everyone; apart from the variety of exhibition objects is still the unbeatable price of admission. If you are under 18, get your free admission, otherwise it costs well-priced 8 euro. This is definitely worth a visit, right? And as our hotel is only a 10 minutes tram ride away, after an eventful museum visit you are also quickly back in our cosy hotel CALMA Berlin Mitte and let autumn-weather simply be autumn-weather…
