The history: a cellar labyrinth of occult things

The Hamburger Hof was built in the Spandauer Vorstadt as early as 1820. At the time, the building mainly housed craft businesses such as bronze foundries and carpentry workshops. Its current appearance can be traced back to the concept of the architects nps Tchoban Voss. Today, the basement houses the museum, which is characterised by an appropriate ambience: The old vaulted cellar resembles a labyrinth. The rooms seem to spread out like the world of magic. The exhibits come from different cultures. You can learn more about medieval alchemy, the earlier combination of magic and science and the superstitions of European religions. The afterlife is alive in the mysticism of primitive peoples. All practices and objects are categorised historically and culturally. The exhibition is interactive: test your own magical abilities with games and puzzles.
