Neues Museum in the Course of Time

Hardly any museum polarizes as strongly with its architecture as the Neues Museum in Berlin. ARIADNE will make your visit an unforgettable experience thanks to an exclusive tour. Experience the transformation of the building – which was destroyed during World War II – at first hand and listen to the legendary stories around the Bust of Nefertiti, Priam's treasure or the Berlin Gold Hat.

In the Ägyptisches Museum (Egyptian Museum), ARIADNE will tell you more about the dignified queen Nefertiti, as well as about her dynasty and the religious reforms initiated by her. On the tour through the reconstructed offering chambers of Egyptian tombs, you will get authentic insights into the conceptions of afterlife and the gods cult of the ancient Egyptians.

The Neues Museum also houses the Museum für Vor- und Frühgeschichte, the oldest museum for prehistory and early history in the world. Here, a 47,000-year-old Neanderthal was presented to the public for the first time. Even today he still casts a spell on numerous visitors. Get an impression of the lifestyle of our ancestors with ARIADNE.

Further highlights of the collections are the archaeological findings of Heinrich Schliemann with Priam’s Treasure from Troy. ARIADNE will walk with you on the trails of Homer taking you on an exciting discovery trip. No less impressive is the 3,000-year-old Berlin Gold Hat, which corresponds to a perfect calendar of 19 years and most likely served as a power instrument to a priest.

Experience Architectural History on Museumsinsel

Another focus of the tour is the architectural debate with the much-discussed reconstruction of the building by David Chipperfield Architects. They succeeded in a spectacular architectural balancing act between history and the present. With ARIADNE, both adults and children will be able to experience the architectural history of the museum.
