The exhibition of the bauhaus museum is only interesting for people who truly understand modern art. The number of collections presented is not that many and would only take around an hour to see the entire gallery.

I very much enjoyed this museum. The staff were also very friendly and informative.Unlike some other reviewers, I also wasn't too bothered about not being able to take photographs - i just used my eyes instead.

The collection is poorer than expected, but the audioguide (which is a must!) makes it up for a visitor. Must-be for all interested in art and design. Remember to visit the Bauhaus Archive Shop afterwards!

Learn about the Bauhaus school and all its different strands, not just building, ceramics and furniture design. Lots of experimental art too, particularly themes of light. Included in the 3-day Museum Pass (24 EUR), but unlike most other museums no photography was allowed. Lockers for...More

Its permanent exhibition displays furniture, ceramics, prints, sculptures, photographs and sketches, all created in the workshop. The museums shop has nice, but very expensive items.

It looked great but this is the museum that closes at 17:00 which we didn't expect because the others are open until 18:00. Good coffee in the café and lovely things to buy in the shop.

One of the places I was most looking forward to. There is a fee of 11 euros, so not too expensive. There was an art exhibition on (an artist I'd never heard of) which was very interesting and then we went through to the actual...More

Well someone described this place. For the connoisseurs. Exhibitions at a high level. Mass tourist looking for entertainment rather not find anything interesting here. But for me interesting.

First impressions are good as the building itself is architecturally fantastic but I was disappointed by the lack of content inside. I thought there would be more exhibits especially paintings. There are some good examples of the timeless furniture that was designed there but again...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
