In summer, 2017, Berlin Underworlds will be 20 years old. We would love you to celebrate this anniversary with us!
On the 17th of June, we are organising a wide-ranging programme, which will take place in ten different locations between 5pm and 2am on the “Long Night of the Underworlds.” Further information about the programme and ticket sales will shortly be available here.
Due to the preparation and wrapping up of the event, on the 17th and 18th of June, no tours will take place. The exhibition, “Myth of Germania – Vision and Crime” and the Museum in the Old Waterworks will also be closed during the day on both dates.
Our exhibition “Myth of Germania – Vision and Crime” is open all year.
April trough October: Thursday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
November through March: Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The vast project of planning Hitler’s Germania was not meant merely to serve Berlin’s citizens with a modernized habitat, but rather as a representation of the Nazi regime's sheer power. With a project that seemed inconceivable to most, the foundations were supported by Speer’s policies of expulsion, deportation and slave labour. By combining these factors, we can see how the attempted development of this new metropolis was inevitably linked with crimes against humanity.
The multimedia exhibition “Myth of Germania – Vision and Crime”, invites visitors to independently explore this complex topic. You can find more information about the exhibition here
