Guided Tours

The Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin regularly offers general guided tours about the history, architecture, and the functions of the library. These tours take place at specific dates in our buildings Potsdamer Straße and Unter den Linden*. Individual visitors and small groups up to 5 persons may join these tours without prior reservation. 

In the interest of all users of the library, we have only a limited capacity for group visits. For individual guided tours, please fill in the form at least three weeks in advance. We apologize for any inconvenience caused in case we cannot organize an individual tour at the date requested.

Independent or self-guided visits are not possible.

Due to construction work, the site Unter den Linden will be closed from November to spring 2020. There will be no guided tours during this period.
