KPM Porcelain Manufacturer

The exhibition known as "KPM Welt" is organised by the Royal Porcelain Factory (Königliche Porzellan-Manufaktur), the oldest artisan factory still in existence in Berlin. The exhibition is on display in former factory halls that date back to the 19th century. With its selection of porcelain and art works, the exhibition provides an overview of the development of the KPM starting with the era of Frederick the Great, who founded the factory in 1763 and commissioned many representative Rococo sets. Students can also tour the storage area for the KPM's various models and forms and watch craftspeople decorating and painting the pieces in the workshop.

Alte Nationalgalerie

The Alte Nationalgalerie is home to Romantic and Impressionist masterpieces, as well as a world-class collection of works by Adolph Menzel. The museum’s collection dates back to a gift from the banker Johann Heinrich Wilhelm Wagener to the Prussian state in 1861, a donation of 262 works with an emphasis on Belgian history painting and the Düsseldorf school.

East Side Gallery

After the Berlin Wall came down in 1989, hundreds of artists from all over the world gathered and transformed the eastside of the Wall with their paintings, giving the Wall a new face in a new time. Known as The East Side Gallery, this section of the Wall is a special place where art has become the expression for a unique point in time of the history of a separated Germany. It is a meeting point that talks about an old Berlin and a new Berlin, a separated and a unified Germany.

Visit to Bell Tower of Berlin Olympic Stadium

The observation platform on top of the Bell Tower provides an excellent view of the city of Berlin and the surrounding areas: from Spandau in the west, to the Alexanderplatz in the centre. Your group will also have a terrific view of the Olympic Stadium! A glass-enclosed elevator will enable pupils to view scenes from the history of the building. The ground floor also features a documentary exhibition about the Olympic Games of 1936 and the history of the site.

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.
