The museum hosts a temporary exhibition on the winners of the "Best Actress" Oscar, which is really worth visiting. Some of the other parts of the museum could do with a bit of updating, though. The layout is a bit confusing and there is no clear direction, Staff could be a bit more knowledgable.

Fabulous Museum celebrating German Film & Television production through the years. I totally loved the entrance to the Museum which is on the 2nd Floor it is amazing. German Film & Television has a rich and interesting history which is very well presented throughout the Museum. The parts I particularly liked were those relating to Fritz Lang and the movie...

If you like film you must visit the Deutsche Kinemathek. We went to see the amazing exhibition Best Actress Oscars®, Roles and Images conceived of by a brilliant man, Stephen Tapert. The exhibition was amazing with film footage, speeches, costumes and photographs spanning many decades. We spent hours there and then explored the permanent exhibition which covers such an incredible... More

You want to know more about the history of the western cinema ? Go there. So many directors who worked afterwards in the US were from this old Europe. The german cinema of the 1st part of 20th century is so creative, an history of the romantisme in the arts. If you like cinema, don't miss it.

Really fantastic exhibition going through the beginnings of film, through German expressionism, an amazing Metropolis moment, nazi propoganda, emigres to Hollywood and Marlena, through to modern cinema. We whizzed through in an hour as we'd arrived late in the day. Beautifully presented and fascinating.

My boyfriend and I visited here on a recent trip to Berlin and really enjoyed walking around, reading and watching it's many exhibits. It was particularly interesting to learn about the experiences of the film industry and famous actors and actresses during Nazi Germany. The museum is really easy to get to, full of interesting things to read and learn... More

The architecture of the Sony center and the display of the museum entrance are worth your ticket. The museum offer a great historical overview on German's film history, including it's most famous contemporary pieces. An exiting and interesting museum for film lovers.

Truth be told I hadn't even considered going to a museum of German film and television when I planned my trip to Berlin. But there we were on a cold and wet October day having coffee on Potsdamer Strasse and wondering how to fill a few hours when we noticed the museum on Google maps, just across the street. I... More

Let me start by saying I'm not a film enthusiastic, and I visited the museum as a part of a delegation. We had a guided tour with an emphasis on propaganda. Our guide, which I unfortunately forget her name, was so enthusiastic about the things she said that we had no choice but to be excited too. Apart from the... More

I must admit I am not a big movie fan and have not become one after seeing this museum, either. However, I can imagine that it is worthwhile to see for anyone who knows most of the movies described there and also the actors whose personal belongings are displayed. You can spend there hours if you use the opportunity to... 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.
