If you are really into contemporary art this place is not to miss. Great exhibitions of international artists. We missed the information about the art in the gallery. Check the gallery before your visit.

Its an old building but packed with contemporary artwork for the Berlin Biennial. Totally worth the ticket. Also the neighborhood is interesting and public transit is easy access to the KW.

poorly managed and just not that interesting I visited when it was free entry, I would have been hugely disappointed had I paid EUR 8

The space was wide and clean allowing each piece/pieces of work to make a statement in the room. The short films were quite interesting, especially those that provided audio headsets. I found it to be a nice experience, my friend however didn't quite get it.

Good and interesting selection of artists with a nice floorplan and courtyard. Free entry on Thursday evenings and not crowded. Loved it!

Should check what exhibitions are up because in my case it was really weak. Art is sure subjective thing but one certanly can say if an effort has been made. Great space though.

The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights
like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum
Island. The central location makes this one of the
city's most expensive places to live. It is here the
oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence
of some significant transformations, as well. The
gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets
between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given
