In honor of IU’s 200th anniversary, this trip has been tailored to provide an educationally enriching experience led by an IU expert. The itinerary also includes a special bicentennial celebration.
Revel in Germany’s flourishing political and artistic capital on this seven-night sojourn.
Take a coach tour of Berlin—feasting your eyes on famous architecture, including Bellevue Palace and Berlin Cathedral. Finish with lunch at the top of the Reichstag, designed by Norman Foster.
A separate tour will lead you through the halls of Berlin’s principal old-master painting museum, Gemäldegalerie. Next, travel to Museum Island to peruse works, such as Pergamon Altar and the bust of ancient Egyptian queen Nefertiti.
In remembrance of World War II, pay a visit to the Topography of Terror—an exhibition at the site of Nazi headquarters. Afterwards, walk the Holocaust Memorial just steps from the east entrance of the Tiergarten.
Take a day trip to Potsdam, roughly an hour outside of Berlin, to see Sanssouci Palace—once the summer home of Frederick the Great. This city is also where Truman, Churchill, and Stalin met to guide the direction of postwar Europe and Asia in August 1945 at Cecilienhof Palace.
Back in Berlin, examine the abstract murals painted on the remains of the Berlin Wall and close out your trip with a chamber concert at the Piano Salon Christofori.
