The Jewish Museum Berlin has raised the bar not only with its exhibitions, but also with its architecture. The museum building by Daniel Libeskind reflects the history of Jewish culture in Germany and provides a striking counterpoint to the adjoining baroque Old Building. In addition to exhibition spaces, the latter offers various rooms and options for all types of events, from exclusive receptions to gala dinners for hundreds of guests in our glass-enclosed courtyard.
