Schlosskeller. Geschichte des Ortes. Steigen Sie hinab zu den historischen Mauerresten des Berliner Schlosses

In the organizer's words:

The castle cellar contains the oldest objects related to the history of the place. The exhibition in the only preserved area of the Berlin Castle offers a tour from the Middle Ages to the present. Here you will find original parts of the medieval Dominican monastery as well as the foundations of the Berlin Castle, which were uncovered from 2008. In the winding corridors, from the chicken coop to the ultra-modern imperial heating system of the time, you can discover finds that tell of the life and work of the monastery residents and palace servants. Down in the cellar, monks used to store barrels, maids used to pluck poultry for the queen's cooks, and the castle guards used to take breaks. Today, original walls and artifacts show that the work of many people was necessary to make everyday life possible upstairs in the monastery and castle.
