Find out more about the German nation, its past and its people at the British Museum’s new exhibition, Germany.

Timed to coincide with the 25th anniversary of the reunification of Germany and also the centenary of the First World War, this compelling show focuses on often forgotten and lesser-known aspects of the mighty German nation.

Drawing on a wealth of objects to explore the vast subject of German culture, the 600-year journey ranges from the height of the Holy Roman Empire and the age of Gutenberg through to post-Cold War contemporary Germany.

The museum has secured important loans from across Germany to tell the story, including works by great artists such as Holbein and Dürer, Bauhaus furniture and spectacular metalwork such as clocks and armour.
