Museumsinsel Berlin

From Yesterday and the Day after Tomorrow: The History of the Museuminsel
Directly across from Haus Bastian stretches the panorama of Berlin’s Museumsinsel (Museum Island). When and how did this special place emerge? What stories do its buildings and their architecture have to tell? What might the Museumsinsel look like in a few years? You’ll discover the Museumsinsel Berlin from unusual perspectives and explore its varied history. Using drawing techniques, you’ll become familiar with views and details of the buildings and artworks. At Haus Bastian, the sketches are supplemented with commentaries, architectural forms, and self-researched information reassembled into a collaborative panorama.

Bookable in German and English.
Duration: 180 minutes
