Culture of Germany
The culture of Germany can keep anyone entertained. There is a huge variety of world-renowned museums that cover a wide range of subjects, from chocolate and cuckoo clocks to classical antiquities. Berlin even has its very own ‘Museum Island’ and is home to several internationally acclaimed museums, including the Pergamon museum, which is full of treasures such as the Palace of King Nebuchadnezzar. Events such as the annual street festival “Museumsuferfest” held on the banks of the River Main in Frankfurt and the “Long Nights of Museums”, where the venues stay open all night, emphasize Germany’s cultural affinity. With over 4,000 museums, Germany has something for everyone.
In the early 20th century, German architecture was highly acclaimed throughout the world. With Walter Gropius, the Bauhaus movement in Weimar and Dessau pioneered new trends in architecture and design, symbolizing the impact of modernism on everyday life. After a decade of careful reconstruction the Church of Our Lady has reappeared as an architectural masterpiece on Dresden’s skyline. The Reichstag building with its restored glass dome has become one of the primary landmarks in Berlin after reunification. Other astounding architectural highlights include newly designed car museums throughout Germany that match both their passion for art and design as well as cars.
