The museum itself was very small - if you didn't use the audio guide you could easily walk through in about 45mins (if that). It cost 8 euros to get in and the audio guide required a 20 euro deposit. I just expected more from...More

I must admit I'm not a connoisseur of art. If a piece of art appeals to me that's that and don't ask me to give you a sophisticated justification. So going to the Bauhaus Museum was a very positive surprise! I'd strongly recommend taking the...More

I did enjoy the designs shown and the shop ( which was expensive). It cost 7 euros per person to gain entrance. The archive is well laid out- informative - there isn't huge display though. Some people must have been getting more out of it...More

Shh.... You can visit this extremely sensitive pice of structure even in the middle of the night. The experience is out of the world... You are away from the hustle and bustle of the busy city, Berlin... Tough luck, couldn't get in during the day......More

... but it is extremely overrated. I explain: the main goal of bauhaus, as far as I understood, was to merge design with industrial production to expand the range of high quality products' users in order to improve life asset of the rising middle-class. There...More

I love the bauhaus history and design philosophy, and it was interesting to see more than the iconic simplicity of shapes. There were also weird sculptures, color swatch studies on more weird spinny sculptural things, odd toys that went to market, a section of bauhaus-influenced...More

The whole museum is really only 2 rooms, but it's a nice collection of work with thoughtful signage. I have no idea why they won't let you take photos - it seems part of the goal of a museum is to inspire and taking some...More

A must-see part of any visit to Berlin. An enormous amount of material presented in a deceptively small but spacious space: you need a lot more time to look, read and reflect than it looks like will be needed. Fascinating and beautiful. Appropriate for the...More

This is a beautiful museum which presents an overview of the Bauhaus movement in art and architecture. It is small and carefully curated, with a wonderful array of works to illustrate the principles of the movement. The shop also has some beautiful things for sale.

Bauhaus archive exhibits interesting art pieces in the form of architecture, furniture and other forms of artwork that were building blocks to some of today's most influential artists. Definitely visit if you like contemporary art with a rich history behind it!

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
