Berlin: Jewish Museum Berlin Entrance Ticket

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. 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. Special exhibition from 9th February until 23rd June (no extra ticket required) "My verses are like dynamite" from Curt Blochs Het Onderwater Cabaret. Between August 1943 and April 1945, the hitherto unknown German Jewish author Curt Bloch produced a unique work of creative resistance while in hiding in the Netherlands: Het Onderwater Cabaret. It comprises 95 booklets of handwritten satirical poems that deal with Nazi propaganda, the course of the war and other contemporary issues. Bloch illustrated each booklet with artistic title collages. Alongside all the original and digitized issues and other works that were also written underground, the show introduces his helpers and those who were with him in hiding, accompanied by eyewitness interviews and insights into Bloch's creative process. Special exhibition: Sex. Jewish Positions 17. Mai – 6. Oktober 2024 (ticket required) As the title suggests, the exhibition seeks to present Jewish positions (pun intended!) on sex in all their diversity. From the central importance of marriage and procreation, via desire, taboos, and the questioning of social norms, to the eroticism of spirituality, the broad spectrum of Jewish attitudes is illustrated using modern and contemporary art, traditional artefacts, film and social media. In addition to guided tours of the exhibition in German, English or Hebrew, there is a varied accompanying programme with lectures, film screenings and other events. p>

Jessie was excellent! She guided us through this grim site with the skill, dignity & knowledge to put it all into historical perspective through the 3 phases of the camp. Excellent use of quotes from survivors & witnesses to describe the horrors experinced by the victims imprisoned & murdered at Dachau.

Very pleasant trip, staff was really friendly and accommodating. We had an hour and a quarter to walk up to Walhalla, spend some time there and walk back, which was easily done. Very good value for money, I would recommend it.

A brilliant tour. Josh, our guide, was fantastic, extremely knowledgeable and very informative. Would definitely recommend this tour

The guide was very knowledgeable and thoughtful. Great experience-very moving!

Quite expensive for what it is, but enjoyable and a bar was a good touch
