This private collection, open only on Saturdays is an absolute treasure. Set in the owners' residence atop a typical Berlin courtyard building between Sophiastr. and Gippstr. The space was wonderful, with many rooms located in the old factory building, where the barrel vaulted ceiling go had been left exposed. What stories they must have been able to share! The art...

We were a small group treated by a friend for her birthday -- this is a gift that simply keeps on giving. Frau Hoffmann (and until the early 2000s with her husband) has renovated two floors of a grand loft building in Mitte. The amazing thing about this enormous, light-filled space is that it is her home, not simply an... More

Just spent one morning in the actual exhibition, and was very excited, and my curiosity grew over time. My daughter Sophie (16) told me later that she could still see every single piece we had seen in front of her inner eye - I think this is the ultimate compliment. I would like to thank Erika Hoffmann and her team... More

I loved the intimate tour in the Hoffman's beautiful home with their extensive collection of modern art. Actually it was more of a discussion of what you saw in each piece, how it made you feel, etc. It was very sensitively hung. I will definately go again, as Erika changes the exhibits each year. Very interesting and I loved the... More

This gallery is only open to the public on Saturdays. You have to book prior to showing up and although I attempted and failed to do this they still allowed me to join the English speaking tour. The guide was extremely knowledgable and friendly. The gallery is in the Hoffman residence and it takes up two floors of the building.... More

this is a real hidden gem - a private contemporary art collection that is housed in a (quasi) domestic setting, that you must book in advance. Private collections have an enjoyable way of meandering through the personal tastes of the collectors over time, and this is no different. The exhibition rotates every year, but in 2012 they had some great... More

Staying in Mitte

Neighborhood Profile
Mitte
The center 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 way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighborhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
