Shuttle buses are running on seven routes to take you straight to the doors of most of the museums. There are also old-timer buses waiting to take you through the neighbourhoods and helpers are on hand to help you find your way to your favourite museum. The shuttle buses are suitable for wheelchairs . Of course you can also use public transport – it’s included in the price of the Long Night Ticket! You can use it to travel on the underground (U-Bahn), suburban railway (S-Bahn), trams and buses in fare zone ABC from 3 pm until 5 am. Children over 6 years of age who can visit the museums without a ticket in the Long Night will still need a ticket to use public transport.
Berlin Museum Information Service is on hand Monday to Friday from 9 am to 4 pm and at the weekend from 9 am to 1 pm to answer all your questions about the Long Night.
On 19 August 2017 our information stands will be located in the Lustgarten in front of the Berliner Dom, in Potsdamer Platz between the S-Bahn entrance and the DB Tower and in the Kulturforum in front of the entrance to the museums. You can obtain tickets, programme brochures, route plans and advice there from 12 pm (from 4 pm in the Kulturforum).
Many museums are offering special activities for children and families. You can find all of these here. The Labyrinth Kindermuseum and the Machmit! Museum für Kinder will be getting their family activities under way earlier in the afternoon.
Children under 12 are admitted free to all the museums and can use the shuttle buses free of charge, but will need a ticket to use public transport.
These museums are offering guided tours in English: the museums on the Museum Island, the Anne Frank Centre, C/O Berlin, the German Historical Museum, the Jewish Museum Berlin, the Museum for Communication, the Gay Museum, the Trabi Museum and the Werkbundarchiv - Museum der Dinge. You can find all the English-language offerings here.
You don’t need to understand German to enjoy the concerts and presentations taking place in many museums – you can find out about these events here. In any case, there are captions and descriptions as well as audio guides in both German and English in nearly all Berlin museums.
Our visitor service staff at the Info stands will be happy to give you help and advice in English.
