Top ways to experience Urban Nation and nearby attractions

The area
Address
Neighborhood: Schöneberg
In 1963, Schöneberg was the center of the political west, inspiring John F. Kennedy to choose this area to famously announce, "Ich bin ein Berliner." Times may have changed, but modern-day Schöneberg still pays tribute to its historical legacies. Once the richest city outside of Berlin proper, the area's affluent past is still visible in ornate housing facades dating back to the Gründerzeit of the 19th century, while residents in fur coats walking their dogs or shopping in high-end KaDeWe continue the tradition with a modern flair. Schöneberg was also once the center of the decadent and burlesque nightlife of the 1920s. It was here that Marlene Dietrich partied with Christopher Isherwood and the first gay bar in Germany was founded. Today, the gay community still revolves around Nollendorfplatz. The overground Ubahn station is even illuminated in rainbow colors, paying tribute to Schöneberg's progressive past.
How to get there

Berlin is surely one of the world's street art capitals. That's visible in many places, but the best are the East side gallery (see that review) and this one.
The Urban nation is little bit off the beaten track. It's in the center of Berlin, but not in a very touristic area. The closest attraction is the Kaiser Wilhelm Church which is some 15 min walk from it.
It's a nice street art museum, nicely curated with outstanding art of many international artist. Best of all, it's free, but donations are welcome. Come and see for yourself, you wont regret it.

There’s is so much to see here. From wall murals, to video, to contemporary art, to photography, to storytelling. It’s not a large gallery but we’ll worth the visit. Some storytelling involves video and photography and 2D art and is eye-opening - the tropical reef intervention is particularly interesting.

Probably one of my highlights in Berlin, I loved this museum. It revolves around the life and works of Martha Cooper, American fotoreporter who has seen and followed the birth of street art and several other movements of the underground scene in the world. I didn’t know her before going to the museum but it has definitely aroused my interest and I’ll surely try to get to know something more about her. The museum is perfectly in line with the vibes you can breathe in Berlin. Don’t miss it!

Many great forms of art by tallented young artists. Topics of the works of art conveyed important messages to the modern society. Must-see for street art lovers and not only. There is another smaller part of this gallery down the Buellowstrasse.
There are no tickets but you can chip in voluntarily. I did not see toilets in there, you can wash your hands though.

Came across this by accident while looking for something to visit during a rainy day. I wouldn't travel for hours to see it, but if you're nearby, it's definitely worth a visit. Not very big - you can see it all within 30-60 minutes - but a very pleasant break. Entrance was free. Donations are accepted.

Amazing collection of contemporary urban art. Spent about 45 minutes in here looking at the collection - it is very well put together. The gallery is free too.

If you love urban art you will be in heaven here. A wonderful museum. Walk around the neighborhood and see the art on the street after... There is currently a Shepard fairy among others on buildings on the street.

A tribute to graffiti, street art, and the artists who produce it, plus displays of their tools. New and worth a visit.
