Historic Jerusalem

Guided Tour for Adults on the History of Jerusalem (in German)

Jerusalem, the world’s bellybutton? Indeed, Medieval maps represent Jerusalem as the midpoint of the known world.

Every Saturday at 3 pm
Where

Old Building, ground level, "Meeting Point" in the foyer


Lindenstraße 9–14, 10969 Berlin

This tour gives an historical overview of the developments and epochs of one of the world’s oldest inhabited cities, from its central role in the Kingdom of Judea to the Jerusalem of today, which is claimed as a capital by both Israel and Palestine.

This map by the theologian Heinrich Bünting does not reflect geographical reality, but rather the biblically determined worldview of its creator. It bears the title “Die ganze Welt in einem Kleberblat” (The whole world in a clover leaf) and can be seen in the exhibition.
