300 Years of Science

A new exhibition has started last Friday in the Martin-Gropius-Bau, about 450m away from Berlin’s Potsdamer Platz.

This year, Berlin celebrates 200 years of the Humboldt University, 300 years of the Charité, 300 years since the first statute and first publication by the Academy of the Sciences and, one year later, 100 years of the Max Planck and Kaiser Wilhelm Society and the 350th birthday of the Berlin State Library.

The exhibition, called “WeltWissen – World Knowledge”, is the high point of the Berlin Year of Science. For the first time since the Reunification, the city as a whole takes a look from a united perspective at the history and present situation of its sciences.
