Subsequent to the conference, we offer all interested participants a very special cultural excursion. Together we want to visit the Pergamon Museum, one of the most famous museums in Germany.

The Pergamon museum houses three of the ‘Staatliche Museen zu Berlin’s’ most impressive collections: the antic collection, the Middle East collection, and the collection of Islamic art.

The antic collection is one of the world’s most important collections of Greek and Roman art. The Middel East collection primarily collects artefacts from a 6000-year timespan of cultural history from the regions Mesopotamia, Syria, and Anatolia. The approximately 270,000 objects in its overwhelming collection were mainly found during the major German excavations in Babylon, Assur, Uruk, and Habuba Kabira. The Museum for Islamic Art boasts one of the most outstanding collections of Islamic art outside the Islamic world. It brings together masterpieces of the decorative arts and archaeological artefacts created by Muslim peoples and the Christian and Jewish groups living with and among them, dating from the 7th to the 19th century.

Following the museum visit we offer our guests a common end of the day in a relaxed atmosphere.
