Berlin Jewish Museum (Jüdisches Museum)

Lindenstraße 9-14, Berlin, 10969

The Basics

The Jewish Museum, opened in 2001, is housed between two connected sites—the baroque Old Building (originally built to house the Supreme Court) and the zinc-covered postmodern structure designed by Daniel Libeskind. Along with exhibits covering the turbulent history of Jewish people in Germany, the museum presents art installations and discussions on modern Jewish life. Highlights include the thought-provoking Holocaust Tower and the Garden of Exile with its concrete pillars laid out at disorientating angles. Explore independently, or arrive as part of a private or group tour.

Take a Trip to the Top of the Reichstag

With its classical columns and imposing size, the Reichstag looks every inch the impressive government building, apart from the futuristic dome protruding from the roof. This modern addition, designed by architect Norman Foster, is open to the public and well worth a visit. You can look down upon the government assembly rooms and see the politicians in action, plus enjoy panoramic views over Berlin from the top.
