Berlin: Art & Design



11 days







This 11 day program is an intimate look at art and design by touring Berlin’s most famous museums, art districts, markets, and more.

Notable destinations in this program include:

Urban Nation Museum for Urban Contemporary Art: Urban Nation is moving the street indoors. With a catwalk stretching across the entire two-story interior, visitors can view the displayed works from multiple angles and distances. The Museum is set in a Wilhelminian-era building in Schöneberg. In contrast to a conventional museum, the building itself is a canvas, with ever-changing artwork on display at the entrance. This art is later displayed inside the museum itself.

Hamburger Bahnhof Museum: Part of the Berlin National Gallery, this museum is a collection of contemporary art with exhibits in art and video, that notably includes works from Andy Warhol.

Bauhaus Museum Dessau: Opening in 2019, the centenary of the founding of Bauhaus, this museum is comprised of around 49,000 exhibits and is the second-largest collection of Bauhaus pieces worldwide.

Gemäldegalerie: This museum boasts one of the world’s most important collections of European paintings ranging from the 13th–18th centuries.

Berlinische Galerie: This gallery is one of the newest in Berlin and exhibits art from the city from 1870 to the present day with both a local and international focus.

Berggruen Museum: Part of the National Gallery of Berlin, this museum is a collection of modern art with works on display from Pablo Picasso, Georges Braque, Henri Matisse, and more.

Students will also be given passes for Museum Island to visit museums of their choice on two days of the program.

In addition, students will have the opportunity to visit some of Berlin’s most famous historical landmarks and destinations, including the Berlin Wall, site of Hitler’s Bunker, the Holocaust Museum, and more.
