Architecture for all the Senses

Guided Tour Exploring the Libeskind Building (in German)

Two corridors with dark slate floors and white walls; one leading to the right featuring a display cabinet; the other leading to the left towards a door to the Garden of Exile; the walls between the corridors feature city names like Istanbul or London

Anyone walking from the museum’s baroque Old Building into the new Daniel Libeskind Building not only sees the architectural differences, but can also hear and feel them.

A very special spatial experience shapes the Axes of Exile, the Holocaust, and Continuity. The labyrinthine Garden of Exile challenges your sense of balance and raises questions about finding your orientation in a strange place.

Every Thursday, 6 pm
Where

Old Building, ground level, “Meeting Point” in the foyer


Lindenstraße 9–14, 10969 Berlin

In the Memory Void, you can feel iron sculptures that commemorate the victims of terror and violence. The sounds in the Axes and Voids amplify the unusual sensory impressions.

“The cold sound is not comparable to any other building,” says Jonas Hauer, designer of the tour for visitors who seek more than just a visual museum experience.

This tour is recommended for our blind and visually impaired visitors.
