Multaka Guided Tours

We guide you through the Berlin museums!

Every Sunday at 16:00 free of charge tours in Arabic and Persian are offered in four museums:

  • Museum for Islamic Art
  • Museum of the Ancient Near East
  • Bode-Museum
  • German Historical Museum (changing special exhibitions)

The interactive guided tours rethink historical objects in the light of contemporary debates, in order to establish a connection between the past and the present. The tours also focus on transculturality and celebrate diverse perspectives, while encouraging cultural participation.

Arabic and Persian speaking visitors are able to join the Sunday tours without previous registration, and will be welcomed by our Multaka guides in the entrance hall of each museum. The Guides are holding a yellow Multaka banner. Participation is limited by 15 persons pro tour, and is on a first-come-first-serve basis. Bigger groups are requested to register beforehand.

What can you experience and discover?

We are back at the DHM Berlin with the new special exhibition „Wolf Biermann. A poet and songwriter in Germany“ (07.07.2023 – 14.01.2024)

Biermann is one of the best-known songwriters in Germany. The exhibition follows the songwriter`s development from his move to the GDR and initial artistic success to the ban that was imposed in his public performances and the eventual deprivation of his GDR citizenship. Our guided tours involve dialogues that examine key moments in his life, which can be relatable for many artists around the world, such as art and activism, exile and censorship. We also aim to take a look at the exhibition through a critical lens and discuss which such an exhibition would be worth a visit for our target audience.
