History Professor Jennifer Allen will be leading A Yale Week in Berlin: Art & Culture in the New Germany. The program will run from October 18 to October 25th, 2018. The program description reads, “In the nearly three decades since the fall of the Wall, no other European city has undergone a greater transformation than Berlin. Bold designs by some of the world’s most renowned architects including Frank Gehry, Daniel Libeskind, and Norman Foster have sparked the city’s renaissance, while thought-provoking monuments have redefined her urban space. Immerse yourself in Berlin’s boundless energy during a perfect week in this vibrant capital.”
“Experience her landmarks, old and new, and discover why Berlin so richly deserves your undivided attention. Highlights include the outstanding collections on Museum Island, a musical performance at one of the city’s fine venues (pending schedules), and a visit to Sammlung Boros, an extraordinary private art collection housed in an above-ground former WWII-era bunker. Spend a day in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Potsdam, to see the Rococo palace of Sans Souci, built by King Frederick the Great as a summer residence, and the Neues Palais, preferred residence of William II. Accommodations are at the luxurious Hotel Regent Berlin, steps from everything in the central Mitte district.”
The trip cost is $5,695. Registration can be found here.
