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

For our museum du jour, we chose the Film and Television Museum, housed in a clearly purpose-built Post Modern building in the Sony Center complex. Exhibits on the film side covered the full history of German film from 1895 to the present, using artifacts, photos and (not surprisingly) film clips from both German movies and Hollywood productions directed by Germans...

This museum, situated in the Filmhaus in the Sony Center at Potsdamer Platz, gives a wonderful overview of German film history and/or the influence of German actors, writers and directors who became famous internationally. The strongest sections are those devoted to the early silents, the influential twenties (Caligari, Metropolis) and the stars who left Germany for different reasons to become... More

This museum is beside the Sony centre and Berlin Mall. It is full of information about German film making and German film stars. There are English as well as German explanations beside the artifacts. I found this would have been of more interest to me if I had known more of the German film stars but it was interesting.

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighborhood Profile
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.
