Guided Tour for Adults

Parts of the Libeskind Building behind four trees

Can architecture give a special form to Jewish identity? In pursuing this question, this tour for adults inside and around the museum building gives instructive insights into the volatile history of Jewish life.

The museum building designed by Daniel Libeskind has given Jewish history in Germany a new and challenging architectural presence.

The history of the buildings that have housed Jewish institutions or been inhabited by Jews is closely linked to the general development of human settlements. By examining Jewish communal, cultural, commercial, and private structures, we can reconstruct various aspects of Jewish buildings from their expansion to their restriction to their destruction.

Weather permitting, participants will also have a chance to view the museum's exterior and grounds as part of the tour.
