Story of Berlin

The story of Berlin was very interesting, and a great first stop if it's your first time in the city. However it is very expensive, but none the less, i would recommend it!

We gave ourselves two hours and were disappointed. Next time, I'll hurry through the top floor to have plenty of time for WW2 and beyond. Most of the signage is well-translated. Many of the recordings loop in German and English, but not all. There are no docents, so you're on your own. Not a great place for young children, as... More

We went to the Story of Berlin on a recommendation and when we arrived we asked if it was possible to go round the museum and bunker tour with our baby in a buggy. We were told yes, they had lifts everywhere and paid our money. We then found out the bunker tour was starting in 30 mins. So we... More

Nice museum, especially the atomic shelter. A bit expensive considering the time needed and recommended to visit the museum (2 hours)

Nice museum that explains the story of Berlin from the middle ages to modern times. Can be quite overwhelming, especially in the early times. Don't forget to time your visit so you can go and visit the bunker afterwards. Plan at least 2hrs for the tour. You get a discount if you have the Berlin Pass.

It was interesting for my first visit, however, it would not go back for a follow-up visit. The ticket price is 12 EUR and they are open 9:00 am-5:00 pm. It felt like a modern art exhibit with some history thrown in. They had a gift shop at the end that had some soda and ice cream. Also flags, books... More

We had four days sightseeing in Berlin and Potsdam and this our only disappointment. The exhibits seemed to have no chronological linkage, they were poorly described, if at all, and it was not the learning experience we had hoped it would be. The only redeeming feature was the visit to the nuclear bunker. Not worth the entrance fee.

One hour tour tells you the whole story of Berlin. Good historic experience for those having limited free time

I thought this was a very interesting museum. I enjoyed seeing the Bomb shelter as well under the parking garage. This gives you a very good view of Berlin history over the past centuries. I would go back with visitors at some point...

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighborhood Profile
Charlottenburg
Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which lends its name to this well-heeled neighborhood. 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 down Kurfürstendamm, the most renowned high-end shopping street in Berlin, where you can find all the big designer names. In the evening, visit one of the old theaters close by Zoo Station which were nightlife hot spots in the 1920s, or dine in one of the many international restaurants around Savignyplatz before heading to other parts of town for a night out.
