Public guided visits

There are several public guided visits in German each week of our exhibitions at the Haus der Geschichte, the Chancellor’s Bungalow, the Bundesrat and in the summer months in the museum garden. As a rule, the guided visits run for 60 or 90 minutes. There’s no need to book in advance to take part in a public guided visit of one of the exhibitions at the Haus der Geschichte. Simply register on the day at the Information Desk in the lobby. Please note the special registration formalities for the Chancellor’s Bungalow.

Please beware that these regular guided visits are all in German!
