The Museum of European Cultures (Museum Europäischer Kulturen) is dedicated to the study and presentation of the lives of European peoples from the 18th century to the present day.
Through the diverse collection of cultural objects on display, the museum explores the fascinating issues that have arises across Europe as culture intertwine. From today’s increased immigration to the historic movements of people across the continent, the museum focuses closely on the hybrid cultures that have emerged, and how these have expressed themselves in stunning cultural objects, from artwork to sculpture and more.
Visitors have the chance to see uniquely hand-crafted objects, including a 1910 gondola from Venice and a twelve-metre so-called Christmas Mountain from the Erzgebirge region of Eastern Germany, comprising 328 partially moveable figures that portray the life of Jesus Christ.
