The district of Berlin-Dahlem is home to the Ethnologisches Museum with its JuniorMuseum, the Museum für Asiatische Kunst, and the Museum Europäischer Kulturen.
Here, visitors have a chance to encounter art and cultures from all over the world, ranging from India’s world of gods to the lives of the Mayans, from exquisite art treasures to everyday culture, from archaic rituals to contemporary performances, and from remnants of advanced, non-European civilizations to European immigration movements.
Visitors’ explorations of various regions of the world are enhanced by media stations, audio guides, guided tours, workshops, and many other activities.
The Market of the Continents takes place during the four weekends leading up to Christmas. Visitors can buy arts and crafts from all over the world at the market, and also get a glimpse into cultures from around the world in concerts, tours, workshops, and performances. Each weekend of the market is devoted to a culture from a different continent.
The market opens with the Children’s Festival of the Continents, which lasts all day Saturday. Visitors are playfully invited to explore world cultures through activities that include baking, building, listening, cutting, and dancing. In short, they are invited to explore the world with all their senses.
