Fascinating work notwithstanding and without doubt a must see. We suspect a great source for academics hidden behind the scenes. Helpful presentation in both German and English, but there is so much more? Good small cafe, flimsy shop content, admission price acceptable although get your...More

Interesting exhibition for those interested in design and art history! But it's the location and the building that makes it the most special. It's a bit like living (art)history.

I only gave it an average because the archivev is being renovated and is in just a small shop. This is temporary but not sure till when. I would imagine when finished it will be a 5 star exhibit.More

The temporary space is located at Knesebeckstr. 1-2 in Berlin-Charlottenburg. However, it is not a museum, it is more an unconventional space with experimental formats....More

This is a very unusual building in the middle of the embassy district. An important institution in the history of architecture. I hope they get their exhibits back up and running. Worth a visit.

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
