The World of the Nebra Sky Disc – New Horizons

State exhibition from 4 June 2021 to 9 January 2022.

From 4 June 2021 to 9 January 2022, the State Museum of Prehistory Halle (Saale) will show the major state exhibition ›The World of the Nebra Sky Disc – New Horizons‹. We present the research results about the Sky Disc from the past 20 years in a unique combination of natural sciences, archaeology, social theory, and art. New finds and findings from Saxony-Anhalt are supplemented by high-ranking objects, some of which have never been shown in Germany before, from over 50 lenders from 14 countries, and staged in a tried and tested exclusive design. These include, for example, the Mold Gold Cape (Wales), the Golden Hat of Schifferstadt, and rich grave finds from Mycenae. The objects span a period of 1,400 years of human history and illustrate the wealth and diversity of an era that is closer to us today than we previously suspected.

The state exhibition is under the patronage of the Federal President Frank-Walter Steinmeier and was created in cooperation with the British Museum, London.


You can find more information on the exhibition themes ›The Realm of the Sky Disc‹, ›Secret Knowledge‹, and ›New Horizons‹ here.

Visitor information

All the important information about your visit to the state exhibition and the currently applicable rules as part of the measures to contain the spread of the coronavirus can be found centrally here.

Accompanying programme

We offer you an extensive and varied programme to accompany the state exhibition. However, we would like to point out that, depending on the applicable rules as part of the measures to contain the spread of the coronavirus, changes to our events may occur. Please find a constantly updated overview here.


An exhibition speaks in images. The staging of archaeological finds lets them tell their history and stories. Even though there is no substitute for experiencing them on site and in the original, we offer you a special way of visiting us here via our films from and about the exhibition.

Audio tour

Not only to prepare your visit, we offer you an exclusive audio tour of the state exhibition. We present the top 10 exhibition highlights in sound and text here. And as a tip: we also offer you our audio guide for download for both the state exhibition and the permanent exhibition.
