Cultural Summer

Every year, the Jewish Museum Berlin (JMB) organizes a “Cultural Summer.” Spread over several months, this varied program of events has grown from being an insider’s tip into a key date in Berlin’s cultural calendar. For over twenty years, we have invited visitors young and old to selected events at the museum and in our extensive grounds. See the best the JMB has to offer with a grand Summer Party, readings, concerts, discussions, our Jazz in the Garden sessions – always a favorite with the public – and the Long Night of Museums event.

This year’s Cultural Summer features a film screening followed by a discussion with the filmmakers, and a Summer School with an evening of readings. Our popular Sunday matinée series, Jazz in the Garden, offers wonderful music, and the full picnic-basket-and-deckchair experience for all the family. And our grand Summer Party with children’s entertainment, whistle-stop tours of the permanent exhibition, live music, activities for all ages and culinary specialties is a perfect opportunity to get to know the museum in all its variety. The Cultural Summer takes the museum out into the gardens for a double dose of culture and (almost always!) sunshine.


To make your visit to our gardens really special, the museum café puts together a special picnic basket for the Jazz Matinées and Summer Party. For further information or to order a basket, just email
