The Jüdisches Museum (Jewish Museum) in Kreuzberg offers an immersive experience of Jewish history, culture and belief, with thanks to the architecture of the museum building. Controversial architect Daniel Libeskind’s vast structure aims to evoke the confusion and despair of persecution. The effect of the jagged, clashing lines of the main building can leave visitors disorientated and discombobulated. But the museum extends beyond the Holocaust – here, we find the story of Jews in Europe over the last few thousand years, told through art, film, documentation and numerous interactive exhibits. With such a colossal amount of information to take in, it's best tackled over a couple of visits. Prepare for security checks upon arrival.

The Jewish Museum is not only an impressive building, which brings out a lot of emotions,but it also helps you to understand German / Jewish history. You can't really put it all in writing - its a place where you have to go to and make your own experience.

Daniel Libeskind’s beautiful, yet deliberately oppressive, building houses a masterful museum devoted to the turbulent history of Judaism in Germany.
