We were lucky to arrive just as an English tour of the bunker was about to start. The visit was interesting and showed how serious the cold war threat was taken. The bunker was designed to hold 3000 Berliners. The museum covered the whole history of Berlin with a good deal to read. We skipped much of the early stuff... More

We went to this exhibit mainly because of the atomic shelter. I didn't know what to expect but it wasn't this. It was quite large inside much larger than I thught it would be. It was/is designed as a shelter for the general population. It houses 3200 people for 2 weeks in the event of a nuclear attack. Having seen... More

This was my least favourite museum in Berlin. It really didn't tell the story of Berlin; displays were cheap looking and not particularly interesting. The tour of the bunker was led by a very 'school marmish' guide who kept asking us to guess the statistics concerning th bunker, such as 'guess how many kilos of food was kept here?' and... More

Dear Karen, too bad that you didn't like it. The mentioned museums such as the DDR Museum and those on Museum Island are specialized on topics. We're giving an overview over 800 years of Berlin history which also means to not focus on epoches. We're also trying hard to maintain the exhibition. Too bad that you had the impression of... More

We arrived in Berlin on a sunday afternoon and this museum was the first thing we visited. You get a brochure with more information on all the rooms you will visit, which are planned in historical order. The only thing missing is interactivity. During your visit you can integrate a visit to a atom bomb cellar which will take around... More

My partner and I are regular visitors to Berlin and have visited this a couple of times but it was a first time visit for the friends we were with. An interesting and not at all stuffy time trip through the history of this amazing city. The inclusive visit down into the nuclear shelter is also worthwhile but not for... More

I expected this to be a cinema show as recently attended in Malta. Instead it is a chronological history of Berlin, A fairly comprehensive coverage and would take two-three hours if you are to read the whole thing. It was followed by a tour of a civilian nuclear bunker, not pleasant but interesting

Dear PaulSmithBristol, interactive means to us not watching a show. It means that our visitor has the possibility to touch things, move around and being able to interact with the exhibition. Therefore our visitors can pull out drawers, see little movies and experience the feeling of stepping directly into the decade by being surrounded by original exhibits and sounds. Too... More

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.
