View behind the scenes

At the "Day of the open Monument" in Berlin monument conservators invite to guided tours on, at and in ancient monuments, buildings and places which normally are not accessible for visitors. While talking about but also showing their day-to-day work the experts make it tangible to visitors and also strengthen people's perception of cultural sites.
