Rather small museum, wished there could be more Bauhaus works/designs on display, not worth the entrance. The gift shop was more interesting than the exhibit. Audio guide focuses more on the history of the Bauhaus school, less on the design/actual works.

We were looking forward to a trip to the Bauhaus museum whilst in Berlin but we're left very dissapointed. We arrived late due to not checking the opening hours before arriving (our own fault) but with 45 minutes we thought we should be able to fit in this small museum. We paid for tickets and made our way in. When... More

If you like art and design it is for you. It's not very big and you can spend there about an hour. There are very interesting sculptures, photos, forniture etc. There is also nice store and cafe

The building itself is stunning and easy to find if walking from the S-bahn. There are lockers to leave coats and bags, which was much appreciated as although it was freezing outside, the museum was warm. When I visited there was a temporary photographic exhibition as well as the permanent exhibition space. It is fairly small but there is plenty... More

It's really impossible to do not get impressed but the architecture of the building itself, then the great exhibit on this museum. Before to get to the museum I walked in the Tiergarten, which is really close, then got immersed into art, which was the perfect thing I could possibly do!

The Bauhaus Museum is really an amazing place to see exhibitions and to spend a couple of hours in Berlin. It's a beautiful museum with a truly great cafe/restaurant as well. The store is also an attraction unto itself. But you're really coming here for the exhibitions which are always smartly displayed, well curated and very thoughtful. If you know... More

If you like art and the history of art, the Bauhaus in Berlin is the place to go. Layout, thoughtfulness, items on display -- all are excellent. This is an eclectic selection of the movement that we all take for granted. Dozens and dozens of objects we see in every day life came from the Bauhaus design, and this museum... More

The museum is great, if a little on the small side. The staff was friendly. Audio-tour is free and highly recommended.

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.
