This place is a disgrace.The website does not make it clear that the main exhibition is closed.I made a huge effort to visit and was charged the normal fee just to see a small photographic exhibition.I asked for my money back and got it.

We walked a long way through Tiergarten to see this museum. It is one room. The gift shop has as much in it. It was only 2 or 3 euros to get in. It's barely worth it. The staff are quite officious and not friendly....More

This has a very small gallery where there is a permanent exhibit of Bauhaus made objects. A temporary exhibition space was closed as they were setting up a new show. The gift shop was extensive. The Café small but served good food and coffee. Located...More

We had quite a long walk after a train ride to get here and we were quite disappointed there was only 1 room with a few items in. The shop was fabulous (if I got a bank loan) and it had a small coffee shop....More

This quirky little museum is actually quite a small display with only two rooms of objects. It took about an hour to visit. Intitially we were disappointed at the size of display. However, if you take the time to linger and use the audio guide...More

If you're on the Bauhaus trail in Germany, then you'll want to come to the Bauhaus Archive in Berlin. Housed in a eye-catching building designed by Walter Gropius, the museum focuses on the work and teachings of the Bauhaus movement. It's surprisingly small and you...More

Hitler closed the Bauhaus in 1933 but the collection remains today as a monument to what he clearly felt threatened by: the concept of movement and futurism. Like most death cults this probably stemmed from the psychosis of an individual who could not face complimenting...More

A must see museum in Berlin. I was fortunate to stay near this museum whom I enjoyed quiet a lot. The history of design and all the info displayed are amazing. I would recommend this museum to anyone interested in the evolution of contemporary design.

Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through
the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which
lends its name to this well-heeled neighbourhood.
Here you'll find some of the oldest homes in the city:
upper-class apartment buildings with ornate facades
and marble-floored foyers line the cobblestone
streets. Stroll by sophisticated restaurants, through
little parks, or around Lake Lietzensee. Window shop
