The area around Hackescher Markt and the Museum Island (Museumsinsel), was once the shady suburb of old Berlin just the right kind of place for myths and magic: and this is where you’ll find Magicum, Berlin Magic Museum in the beautifully renovated, listed building of Hamburger Hof, originally from an old blacksmith.

Step down into the cellar rooms and descend into a magical cosmos that stretches from abracadabra to magic potions.

Skillfully arranged and sometimes presented with tongue ever so slightly in cheek, the exhibition takes you from the origins of magical thoughts and ancient wisdoms, through ancestral forms of worship and interpretations of the future, to games of illusion and the power of intuition.

Explore the labyrinthine exhibition rooms and marvel at exhibits from an impressive range of cultures and continents. Spend some time in the enchanting atmosphere of the magical salons and discover your own magical talents and intuitive skills with our puzzles and riddles.
