Ephraim-Palais – Big-City Frenzy in the Roaring Twenties

Tour of the Special Exhibition

Until 31 January 2016

What shaped the “Roaring Twenties” in Berlin? And what kind of times were they really, when glamour and misery flourished side-by-side?  After the First World War, people began to turn away from the traditions of the Wilhelmine Period and Berlin experienced a blossoming of art, culture and science. People sought out entertaining distractions; women adopted a slim, boyish look; people danced the Charleston; cars became increasingly common and the city got louder and louder.

In this one-hour tour of our special exhibition Dancing on the Volcano, you will experience the big-city frenzy of the twenties and learn how a unique generation of artists lived during these extraordinary times.

This guided tour is available in ENGLISH, FRENCH, ITALIAN and SPANISH: €50.00 (up to ten people, each additional person €5.00) plus reduced admission price per person. Booking and information: +49 30 24002 162 or
