Berlin: Culture vultures can party late in 'Long Night of the Museums' [Updated]

January 07, 2011|By Susan James | Special to the Los Angeles Times

On Jan. 29 and Aug. 27, the city of Berlin will stay up late to play.

Nearly 70 of the German capital's museums, historical sites and other cultural centers will open their doors from 6 p.m. on Saturday to 2 a.m. on Sunday during the "Long Night of the Museums."

[For the Record, 1:55 p.m., Jan. 20: An earlier version of this post said that the "Long Night of the Museums" would occur every weekend, beginning Jan. 29 and running through Aug. 27. It is happening only for two nights.]

The choice of things to see and do is immense. Among them: the Museum Island complex, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site; the Anne Frank Center; the Berlin Zoo; the funky, retro DDR Museum; and the offbeat, interactive Labyrinth Children's Museum (no shoes allowed). There’s something for nearly every taste. 

Besides the museums, you'll find outdoor light shows, music, theater, dance and culinary events that add to the happening vibe. One ticket, which costs 15 euros (about $20) buys admission to all the events plus unlimited use of a special shuttle bus.
