Unveiled. Berlin and its Monuments.

Guided tour

Monuments fulfill various functions, representing power, identification, memory and remembrance. They are erected and then they disappear again. In “Unveiled. Berlin and its monuments”, around 100 original monuments and interactive media tell us of the city’s history: The rise and fall of political systems and their often difficult heritage in a public space. Among the most important exhibits are the statues from the historical Siegesallee, built between 1898 and 1901, and the head of the Friedrichshain Lenin monument, unveiled in 1970. Touching is permitted with some exceptions!
