Less thrilling for non-designers

As a non-designer I don't find it particularly interesting. But judging from its exhibition I am sure a designer/architect/artist would find it amazing!

I was really looking forward to this as I studied Bauhaus for A level art some time ago now but i found it quite disappointing - luckily it was only 5 euros.

I am not the museum visitor, but this building is very nice, than worth to see it. The cafe is simple, but the cakes are very good, than try it. There is a shop with articles such as posters or toys... For me the building was the best.

Enjoyed this museum a lot. Not very big -- you can get in and out in about 1 hour. Entrance was included in our 3-day Museum Pass. We visited on Monday since it is one of only a few museums open on Monday. Audio tour was excellent and provided detailed description of about 30% of the items in the museum... More

The first thing you encounter as you arrive at the Bauhaus Museum of Design, is the impressive modern building that houses the collection. I was glad the sun was shinning on the day I went. Take some time to look at the exterior of the building. The entry fee includes a free audio guide. English is available. The items on... More

If you're a designer (graphic/product/interior) or an architect, stepping into the bauhaus archive is probably like stepping into a cathedral. It's a pilgrimage. The building was designed by walter gropius himself, filled with history and portfolios from the masters (itten, van der rohe, etc) and the pupils. Sadly you can't take any photos here You pay 8 euro which is... More

It is really good to see such a collection of this period. Definitely worth a visit to see how much they influenced modern design

We spent a couple of hours walking through the Bauhaus archive today and were very impressed with both the collection and the way it was displayed. For 7 euro it was great value with some important examples of Bauhaus design. Highly recommend.

If you are into design then this is for you. A menagerie of items on display show the clear lines of Bauhaus style, the major down side is the amount to see (not enough in my eyes). The shop provides the opportunity to purchase a wide range of eclectic products. The Archive is a little off the beaten track, but... 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.
