Berlin’s museums are opening their doors in the middle of the night, on August 27! Visitors can stroll through art galleries and ballrooms at an unusual hour, explore planetariums and hi-tech laboratories, and have a closer look at some of their favourite objects – and maybe even discover some rare treasures. Guided tours, workshops, films and music will open up new perspectives and offer a whole new museum experience.
Shuttle buses on different routes take visitors right to the doors of almost all the 77 participating museums. Tickets can also be used for local public transportation. An overview of all the routes and connections to U-Bahn and S-Bahn lines is available in all the museums. The Long Night visitor guides speak English. From 6 pm to 2 am Call a Bike bikes will be available at all Berlin station locations free of charge. Anyone interested can register there or at www.callabike.de and get straight in the saddle.
In 2016 the Museum Summer is taking place for the second time, concluded by the Long Night.
The Long Night of Museums is a collaboration by the Berlin museums and Kulturprojekte Berlin GmbH.
