Museum Barberini with Ortrud Westheider and Michael Philipp
Museum Barberini kindly offers CODART members a short tour around the museum followed by a buffet sandwich lunch. The museum is not far from Schloss Sanssouci so participants can easily combine the two visits. The group will be welcomed by the museum’s Director Ortrud Westheider and accompanied by Chief Curator Michael Philipp. For more information about the museum, please visit the website www.museum-barberini.com/en/

Under the guidance of Carsten Dilba, Curator at the Stiftung Preussische Schlösser und Gärten Berlin-Brandenburg, we will visit Jagdschloss Grunewald, a former hunting lodge set up by Elector Joachim II of Brandenburg in the sixteenth century. The Elector commissioned paintings by both Lucas Cranach the Elder as well as his son Lucas Cranach the Younger. Paintings of these important Renaissance artists are now permanently exhibited at Jagdschloss Grunewald. The tour will cover the Cranach Collection. You can visit the rest of the Palace on your own after the tour if you wish. Please find more information about the Jagdschloss on their website.
