Kind of interesting but overpriced. I don't like to criticize someone's "art" which is what this is, but 36 euro for a 15 min show is a bit steep. The monsters are neat but the fog and light effects are so overdone that it makes it hard to see them. The last "room" is extremely loud and repetitive. You are... More

When I read about the Monsterkabinett, naturally I had to check it out. It's located in an alley with funky artwork and a bar that seems to cater for the alternative music crowd. It doesn't open until evening if I remember correctly. It's a series of corridors with animatronic monsters made of bits of junk, that move, squeak, squawk and... More

This place is amazing. You would have to be a fool not to like this. That is, unless you don't enjoy giant robotic monsters performing amazing feats for you in a dungeon. Incredibly artistic, amazing engineering, and a very fun experience altogether. I will never forget it.

I think that Monster Kabinett needs an advocate. In my opinion, Monster Kabinett is not a waste of time or money. Ok, yes, the show costs 8 Euros, yes, it only lasts 20 minutes or so, and yes, the monsters are a bit on the shabby side, but I still think that this is something that is definitely worth checking...

This "attraction" costs 8 euro and lasts for 20 minutes. This entails going down into a basement under a bar where a "guide" shows you 7? odd, old "robots" I put " " as I have no idea what to describe this as. It is pretty awful I would advise you avoid it. I put 2 not 1 stars as... More

Had this bigged up by a couple of friends. We went to see it and all of us were very miffed. The lady who showed us around didn't seem to care and the 'monsters' got very boring very fast. Definitely not worth the 8 euros we paid each. Beware when buying a ticket they said we can bring drinks from... More

I don't know who is the target for this exhibition. Even if you are a fan of industrial or modern art I'm not certain if you will enjoy it. There were very few robots displayed. Almost none of them impressed me (except for the last one). It seems that owners of the exhibition think that they robots are more fun... More

There is so much to say about this, but to be honest it has to be seen to be believed. It's absolutely bonkers and will be the first thing you tell your mates about when you get home. Just go. PS: To find it, go into the alleyway/street and keep walking round until you see the sign to queue. It'll... More

Staying in Mitte

Neighborhood Profile
Mitte
The center of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighborhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
