ARTnews and Academic Travel Abroad are launching an exciting new travel program for 2022 that offers exclusive experiences with insight that only our experts can provide.
7 Days | September 9-15, 2022
Explore Berlin, a dazzling 21st-century destination, through the lens of art. ARTnews expert and editor Emily Watlington’s whirlwind insider tour showcases Berlin’s pivotal role in art, culture, and architecture. Watlington pairs insightful, fresh commentary with Berlin’s gritty murals, hot creative districts, sleek contemporary museums, and antiquity and Islamic art exhibits.
We’ve scheduled stops to quench your thirst for immersive experiences and hidden gems, along with plenty of time for serendipitous discoveries. Enjoy guided tours at Pergamon Museum and Bröhan Museum. And let the distinctive Boros Collection and Haubrok Foundation welcome you inside to view cutting-edge art made by internationally renowned artists and craftspeople.
Explore the innovative Charlottenburg, Kreuzberg, and Auguststraße districts, packed with contemporary museums, street art, and art laboratories. Admire the architecture of Le Corbusier’s Brutalist housing complex, Corbusierhaus; visit the treasures on the UNESCO World Heritage Site Museum Island; and learn about the history of East Side Gallery, where artists repurposed a portion of the Berlin Wall into an open-air art exhibit.
Of course, we’ll also make time for iconic Berlin destinations such as the neoclassical Brandenburg Gate, the impressive Gendarmenmarkt public square, and Tiergarten urban garden. We’ll also visit indoor historic food court Markthalle Neun and the Olympiastadion, where the 1936 Summer Olympics took place.
Memorable meals are on the itinerary as well, perhaps a rooftop lunch at the Reichstag or dinner served on Meissen plates during a day trip to Europe’s oldest porcelain factory after a behind-the-scenes tour. Accommodations will be at the four-star Arcotel John F Berlin, located within the city’s embassy quarter and within walking distance of iconic sights like the Brandenburg Gate.
