Make sure you know which galleries are available...

It was a real disappointment to see this gallery and learn that that two wings I really wanted to see were closed due to changing exhibitions. I was still charged full admission... read more

Modern art or spare building site materials? Not thought provoking, not groundbreaking and if you get the museum pass card don't be fooled it won't get you into half of this place. Disappointing...visit the national gallery instead

After Musee d'dorsay I was looked forward to a another museum at a former train station. The terminus itself is nice enough but this is the first time I have ever gone to a museum and felt like saying give me my money (14 euro) back. It was the American Carl Andre exhibit and a Turkish woman sorry don't recall... More

This is not a railway station - rail activity stopped in 1905, but a very good museum of modern art. This time there were four exhibitions - the one with the history of nazis and the "degenerate art" was the most informative. We learned again a lot.

It was a real disappointment to see this gallery and learn that that two wings I really wanted to see were closed due to changing exhibitions. I was still charged full admission (14 Euro) but half the displays were blocked off. There's supposed to be a good number of Expressionists here, but I wasn't able to see them. That said,... More

I recommend for everyone with any interest in culture visiting Berlin to do what we always do: go to the contemporary art museum at the Hamburger Bahnhof. Always a fine experience, and a good variety of temporary exhibitions in a very well-adapted historic building. Inevitably, some exhibitions are better than others, but if you chance on something as fascinating as... More

I have been to Berlin many times and I finally managed to visit last year. I arrived before it opened and sat in the front courtyard area. There is a circular garden and it looked very scruffy. I put this down to budget cuts but soon realised this was art. This should have alerted me as to what to expect... More

We happened to catch a special exhibition called Manifesto featuring 13 13' videos starring Cate Blanchett in different roles - all riveting and thought provoking

Well ,I must admit that the art work inside did not take my fancy, but I saw an exhibition about the Nazi's forbidden art. The art they sold off as it was undertaken by persons not in favour with there ideals. The building was worth a look but at €12 was rather expensive I thought.

The gentleman at the ticket office didn't feel like greeting us nor like talking and listening. He sold us the wrong tickets. I kindly explained that I have asked for tickets to see all the art, and that he sold us tickets to see the 'Sonderaustellung'. Growing up in Berlin I am pretty much used to the Berlin moody attitude.... More

The museum is great. Julian Rosefeldt's "Manifesto is a must see. It really impresses. You will need a lot of hours to complete all exhibitions.

Staying in Moabit

Neighborhood Profile
You may not realize Moabit is one of the city’s most central neighborhoods when you arrive at Hauptbahnhof (central station). Surrounded by waterways, Moabit is a quiet island protected from the hustle and bustle of Berlin. The crowds that do gather prefer spending their evenings in cozy restaurants over the party venues offered by other districts. With its beautiful parks, old housing and romantic industrial areas, life has traditionally been relaxed and a bit slower here. But the tone may soon be changing. Reasonable housing costs and proximity to city center are attracting more young Berliners and international visitors. This interest is encouraging new bars, cafés and nightclubs, making Moabit a candidate for most up-and-coming neighborhood in the city.
