Culturally, it will matter little where your interests lie –whether in the sciences, visual arts, history, music or history of culture – this evening will provide something for all tastes. There will both time and place to find quiet contemplation or sound full performances – the ‘Long Night of Museums’ has something for everyone.
Emphasis this evening will be on the Prussian King Friedrich II, the Great, the old man, and now, on his 300th Birthday, he is almost everywhere – on the front pages of stores, in the windows of bookstores, exhibitions and television documentaries and now even at the Long Night of Museums. With good reason, as we find.
For Frederick II, more than any other personality shaped the cultural identity of the Berlin and Brandenburg and left its traces in the collections of several museums and collections.

On the famous boulevard Unter den Linden, at the famous equestrian statue of the King, there is a be lazer large-screen projection with traditional sayings of Frederick in both French and German and – if the weather cooperates – a huge snow sculpture.
