In Search of Traces of the Berlin Salon Culture
City Walk for Friends of the Museum
We are hoping for golden September sunshine for our city walk in search of traces of Berlin salon culture. It is surprising which traces of salon culture can still be found in Berlin’s cityscape today.
The city walk with museum guide Kerstin Bragenitz follows them from the cemeteries in front of Hallesches Tor and the graves of famous salon visitors such as Henriette Herz and Rahel Varnhagen, to the "salon district" around the Gendarmenmarkt. Rounding off the tour with a visit to the Knoblauchhaus Museum in the Nikolai district, we experience the life culture of the Biedermeier era. Our search is on foot and by subway.
