Mobility, conflict, exchange and innovation: Exhibits from these thematic areas and from all German federal states point out the consequences of supraregional interaction on a personal, economic and religious level. With spectacular new archaeological finds and new perspectives on old finds, the exhibition shows a unique network of cultural interaction in Europe from the earliest times to the more recent past.

Highlight: The Nebra Sky Disk

The outstanding piece of the exhibition is the Nebra Sky Disk. The Sky Disk is considered to be the oldest concrete stellar image in the history of mankind. Matthias Wemhoff, Director of the Museum for Pre- and Early History of the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin, told the German Press Agency: "This is a novelty, because otherwise the Sky Disk will not be borrowed". The last time the Nebra Sky Disk was seen outside Saxony-Anhalt was in Basel, Switzerland, in 2007.
