Traces of the Middle Ages

25 August - 28 October. An open air exhibition uncovering what Berlin looked like during the Middle Ages takes place at locations across the capital as part of the city's 775th birthday celebrations.

Even though much of the city was decimated during world war two, and subsequently largely rebuilt, traces of its mediaeval past are surprisingly clear.

The exhibition follows the city's old four kilometre-long boundaries, uncovering the sites of former marketplaces, bridges and churches from the 13th century.

Using historic sources and excavation findings, the city takes visitors on a trip back in time, revealing how little the city has changed since mediaeval times.
