The museum maps several epochs, that lead to surrealism. It contains mostly drawing, nicely presented. You can buy 3day museum ticket for 29EUR (which I highly recommend even for 2 days), it covers this museum as well.

The entrance of 10euros cover both this museum and the one across the road. They are both value for money. This was the former Egyptian museum but there is still an impressive massive Nubian gate that will be moved to Museum Island sometime this year....More

There aren’t any big ticket items here that the average, working class North American would know about but I really enjoyed this gallery. I’d never seen much of Max Ernst’s work and I learned that I’m a big fan of his! Almost every room in...More

I visited the Collection Scharf-Gerstenberg (Sammlung Scharf-Gerstenberg) during my visit to Berlin in August and September 2018. The entrance ticket for the Museum Berggruen also covers the Collection Scharf-Gerstenberg and costs 10 euros. The two museums are across the street from each other and also...More

Just opposite to Museum Berggruen (individual ticket allows for entry in both). Most of the collection is around symbolism, surrealism, and its precursors. Among the surrealists there are nice works by Giorgio de Chirico, Max Ernst and Paul Klee. My favorite pieces in the collection...More

A little miracle : in a spare, yet elegant,classical building tastefully brought up to modern speed, a truly excellent collection centered on... officially surrealism, but extending deep into the past of semi-irrational art. It starts very intelligently with the full complement of Piranesi's 16 plates...More

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
