What did our world look like 150 million years ago?
In the central atrium of the “Museum für Naturkunde”, fossils of plants and animals from the late Jurassic are on display. Many of the exhibits were brought here from one of the most significant palaeontological expeditions to Tendaguru Hill in what is now Tanzania. Between 1909 and 1913, scientists of the Museum, led by palaeontologist Werner E. M. Janensch (1878-1969), found approximately 230 tonnes of bones – the most successful dinosaur excavation of all time. To this day, much of the Museum’s research has been focusing on these finds.

The dinosaur skeletons from Tendaguru are complemented by plants and animals from other fossil sites, such as the world-famous Solnhofen limestone. The original Berlin specimen of the primaeval bird Archaeopteryx lithographica is a particular highlight. It is displayed in a state-of-the-art security display cabinet that provides an ideal environment to preserve the fossil as well as allowing scientists to study it.

19:00 Entry

Cost: 40€

The founder Oli Lemke had already received a degree in business administration and had graduated from a brewing degree when he decided to set up his own brewery. Even more important: He gained experience, around the world, whilst working for large enterprises in Venezuela and building breweries in Japan. And with all that experience under his belt, he welded his first own brewing plant in a friend’s garage in 1998.

On the 21st November 1999 his dream became reality: The Brauhaus Lemke opened for the very first time. During the first few months the owner completely overwhelmed his guests with more than 50 kinds of beer.

The last extension took place in 2010, when the Brauhaus was complemented with a beer garden, which has been extremely popular from day one.
