Take a look behind the scenes, from the top floor down to the extensive subterranean stacks. Get to know the German Music Archive, the German Exile Archive and the Deutsches Filminstitut! Meet the director!
We take you on a guided tour of the technical facilities, the data centre and our artworks. There is a treasure hunt for teens, discovery tours, and a workshop for children. On this day, people have the opportunity to learn about the world of digital media, inform themselves about the German National Library as an employer, and visit the exhibitions of the German Exile Archive. The programme is rounded off with curiosities from the collections and short readings by the actress Sarah C. Baumann, titled “Where books live – libraries in literature”.
