Unlike in most museums, the way to the permanent exhibition at the Jewish Museum Berlin is downstairs.

The connection between the Baroque building through which one enters the museum and the new building designed by Daniel Libeskind which houses the exhibitions is underground. Dark and winding are the stairs that symbolically link the past, present, and future of German-Jewish coexistence.

Daniel Libeskind said of his architecture: "What is important is the experience you get from it. The interpretation is open."
