When the large touring exhibition "Teotihuacan - Mexico’s Mysterious Pyramid City" 2010 was on view in Berlin in 2010, Universes in Universe published several features about the archaeological site, which is one of the world's most impressive places.

Teotihuacan was the first, largest and most influential metropolis on the American continent, between 100 B.C. and 650 A.D. In its heyday, the city reached an area of about 20 square kilometres, with a population of more than 150.000 people. It is still not known, who were the inhabitants of Teotihuacan, and why the city was abandoned around 650 A.D. Not even its original name is known.
