In times when one barely knows which ingredients a ready-meal entails, it seems important to think about the origins of food products. Berlin’s Domain Dahlem is a farm and museum for the young and old alike which vividly demonstrates where our food originally comes from.

“The Domain Dahlem is an organic farm and museum in one and probably the world’s only farm with an underground connection (‘Dahlem-Dorf’). In no other museum, one can experience so authentically and diversely where food comes from,” Dr. Peter Lummel, museum director, explains. The open-air museum is divided into two sections: the farm and the museum. Both present the cohesive food chain from primary production to processing, as well as trade, cooking and consumption.
