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

Not suprisingly - yet most originally set and presented - the standing exhibits focus on the production of the ground breaking, "Metropolice", as well... 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.

It's worth the visit if you like cinema and are interested in learning about german film history. And it's a fun place to visit, with different rooms and levels. It's very well located too, in the city center, so it's a nice experience.

Try to visit the student cafe associated with the film school. It is on the top level of the Sony center and provides excellent views of the atrium.

We love film but this museum was not at all interesting it took barely 25 mins to get round. Very little is interactive and there are massive amounts of wasted space. The best bit was the elevator... A very "flat" experience...with just a few film extracts to see...rest are pictures and items ...a 2d experience

If you are into film or german history this museum would definitely interest you. My favorite part was the Marlene Dietrich exhibit which has many of her outfits from famous films as well as personal objects including personal correspondence. It is so informative about the film industry in German and goes from it's beginnings until very recently.

The Museum's coverage is somewhat skewed (e.g., do we really need three full rooms on Marlene Dietrich, great as she was?), but there is much here to admire and enjoy, especially on the pre - WWII period, which was arguably the most creative in the history of German cinema. Also of note is the all - too - limited exhibit... 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.
