A guide for everyone

Inclusive audio guide to the permanent exhibition "Art in Berlin 1880–1980"

Use our audio guide to find out more about our current presentation from the Berlinische Galerie collection. It includes audio contributions, exhibition texts and reproductions of 17 highlights from the collection. The audio guide is available in German and English and can be used either as an app or as a Web version on your own smartphone or tablet.

Apart from background information about the art works and the history of the period, the guide contains audio descriptions to give the blind and visually impaired a closer idea of the original works. The audio pointers – in combination with our tactile floor guidance system – facilitate independent navigation around the exhibition. This offers our blind and visually impaired visitors interactive, barrier-free access to the Berlinische Galerie collection. The app automatically triggers audio pointers that help the blind and visually impaired to move around the exhibition independently.

The guide is available as an app and can be downloaded free of charge from the App Store for Apple iOS or the Google Play Store for Android. If you don’t have your own audio device, you can loan one from the ticket desk.

There is also a Web version of the app that you can open in your browser here.

Please note: We have removed the tactile models for now to meet the current hygiene requirements. Furthermore we are currently not lending out audio guide devices and tactile museum maps.
