Travel Tip: Art and Archaeology in Germany

Troy : Dream and Reality
BONN  •  Kunst-und Ausstellungshalle der Bundesrepublik Deutschland  •  Ongoing
The exhibition provides the visitor with the opportunity to explore a many-faceted view of Troy, Homer and his Iliad, Troy and the Trojan War as well as the treatment of this theme by authors, poets and artists from antiquity through the Middle Ages up until modern times. This vision is juxtaposed against its real prehistoric geographic position as a city built on a hill situated in the Dardanelles, and as it has been documented through archaeological evidence produced by Heinrich Schliemann and the current research undertaken by the international archaeological team lead by Manfred Korfmann since 1988.

Original manuscripts, written records and depictions on antique ceramics and sculptures, medieval manuscripts, modern paintings, prints and art objects are on view. The archaeological section presents unique finds which have never been seen before outside of Turkey: a man-sized storage vessel, fine tableware used by the nobility as well as precious jewelery and weapons, among other artifacts.
