Body Worlds Berlin – tickets, prices, what to expect

Body Worlds Berlin is a unique exhibition where visitors see real plastinated human bodies and learn about how our bodies work.

As one of the flagship attractions in Berlin, the attraction has garnered global acclaim for its educational value and detailed approach to breaking down the human form complexities.

Explore the human body’s inner workings – how we sit upright, move, laugh, and more – in a way previously reserved for medical professionals.

This article covers everything you must know before booking tickets for the Body Worlds Berlin. 

What to expect at Body Worlds Berlin

Founded by Dr. Gunther von Hagens, the Body Worlds Museum will change how you see human beings and your own body.

You must have always known the different organ functions, but for the first time, you will see them at this museum, also known as the “People Museum.”

Besides over 200 human Plastinates efficiently conveying single organ functions and disorders, you will also see the world’s first Human 3-D Fascia Plastinate in the Body Worlds Berlin.

Looking at the numerous plastinated real human bodies on display, you will gain a detailed understanding of the body’s complex but delicate internal systems.

Learn more about the human skeleton, the muscular system’s interplay, the digestive system, the development of an embryo in the womb, the cardiovascular system, and much more.

You will also understand what makes us “US”, by dwelling over existential topics like Happiness and Unhappiness, Excess and Moderation, Pressure and Release, Gluttony and Restraint, and Chance and Destiny.
