German Museum of Technology

One of the largest museums in Europe, the German Technology Museum is an interactive venue for learning and hands-on experiencing, with exhibitions on practically all branches of technology and transport, including traffic, communications, production and energy technology, sea navigation, space and aeronautics. Pupil groups can also benefit from a themed guided tour – themes include People & Technology, Technology & War and Technology & Art.

 

TV Tower

Located at the very heart of the city on the Alexanderplatz, the Berlin TV tower is part of German history: in the sixties the East German government had the TV tower built to demonstrate the strength and efficiency of the socialist party system. Today the tower, Berlin’s highest structure, shapes the skyline of the German capital city and has fantastic views - and serves as a landmark of the reunited Germany. Your group can pinpoint the many landmarks and attend the free exhibition.
