European House Berlin at the Brandenburg Gate is hosting an exhibition entitled ‘Erlebnis Europa’, dedicated to informing the public about the European Union and its institutions. The exhibition uses innovative methods to do this, such as simulation games, 360° cinema and much more, all available in 24 European languages.

Since May 2016, the Information Office of the European Parliament and the Representation of the European Commission in Germany has been hosting an exhibition at the European House Berlin titled ‘Erlebnis Europa’ (“European experience”).

The aim of this exhibition is to provide visitors with an insider’s view of the workings of European Union and its individual institutions. Visitors can take part in the plenary session of the European Parliament in the 360° cinema or play simulation games where they take on the role of an EU Commissioner or Member of the European Parliament. Visitors can also learn specifically about individual EU Policies, the EU’s enlargement process or go to the Info-Counter for any questions about the EU.

Visitors to the exhibition can acquire a better understanding of the everyday functioning of the organization. The European Union is undoubtedly a prime example of successful cultural diplomacy: from the end of World War Two, increasing cultural, economic and political interconnectedness has brought stability and peace to the region and this exhibition serves as a reminder of it.

The exhibition is open daily from 10:00 until 18:00 and there is no entrance fee. It is available in 24 European languages.
