Unveiled. Berlin and its monuments

Berlin and its Monuments” we invite you to unveil and tactilely experience nearly 100 original political monuments and their secrets.  From the monument ensemble of the Siegesallee to the head of the former Lenin monument, political power, identification, remembrance and commemoration are reflected.

“Sinnes-Wandel Museum” invites you to a dialogical perceptual tour through the permanent exhibition “Enthüllt. Berlin und seine Denkmäler”. The tour is primarily aimed at blind and visually impaired people, but sighted visitors are also welcome. They all receive historical information and detailed pictorial descriptions of selected objects in the exhibition and then explore them with different senses – by touching, smelling and hearing. Through their sensory impressions and sensations, they approach the objects in different ways. In the dialogue that develops, the different “views” of the objects become clear – a truly inclusive experience in the museum.

Casemates

The citadel’s casemates form one of the largest winter habitats for bats in Europe. They are therefore only accessible to visitors for three months a year. The vaulted corridors with their thick walls were built for defensive purposes. During your visit to the casemates of the Bastion König, you will not only explore one of the oldest areas of the citadel, most of which has been preserved in its original state, but also a place of cinematic interest, including “Der Hexer” by Edgar Wallace filmed here in 1964.

Solid footwear is recommended.
