Designed by American architect Daniel Libeskind, the Jewish Museum Berlin's unorthodox design has become a tourist attraction in its own right. Inside the museum visitors will find a comprehensive collection of fascinating artefacts documenting the lives of ordinary Jewish people living in Germany between 1848 and 1919. With numerous artworks and exhibits, the Jewish Museum Berlin is a must for those with even a small interest in this country's history.
