The Kulturforum has a number of exhibition area within the building and you get a ticket that covers you for the whole place, but we found out that doing one exhibition properly was enough for a day.
The restaurant was good with a small selection...More
Purpose-built culture centre in West Berlin, built I'd Say as a counterpoint to the Museum Island in East Berlin! The best part of the Forum is the Philharmonia and the Gemäldegalerie.
The Kulturforum is not actually a single attraction. It includes several museums: Gemäldegalerie, Kunstgewerbemuseum...More
Huge building just nearby other cultural building (concert hall, library, museum) and close to Neue Nationalgalerie by Mies van der Rohe (under construction now) houses old masters of highest level. Great bookshop inside, cafe. Close to Potsdamer Platz and Tiergarten park.
This is the place to go if you only have 24hrs in Germany and love Applied Arts and Fine Arts. We planned to visit one museum not realising that there were several to visit. It’s a great place to visit especially for a severe dose...More
Everyone looking for art in Berlin focuses on the Museum Island. Sure, it is nice, but the real gem for old masters in Berlin is the painting section of the culture forum - a building that looks like a 1960s big US high school. All...More
We felt fortunate to visit this museum with its excellent collection of important old masters. The museum has 2 of only 34 paintings firmly attributed to Johannes Vermeer - we saw The Wine Glass. For those doing a Northern European museum tour (Rijkzmuseum, Mauritshuis, Royal...More
Is it possible to book a time slot for the popular museums (Pergamon and Neues) at any of the state museums, or only at other museums located on Museum Island? I want to go to the Gemaldegalerie, which I think is in the Kulturforum area, but I'm wondering if when I'm there I can get timed tickets for the following days at Pergamon and Neues. Thanks!

I believe you can only do it at the Museum Island museums, but that shouldn't be a problem.On the day that you want to go to them, just arrive at the Altes Museum or the Altenationalgalerie (or the Bode Museum, if you are coming from that direction and pass it) and ask for the time slots you want. The time slot tickets can be issued for the following day as well as the current day if you don't want to tackle those two huge museums one after the other. The Gemaldegalerie IS in the...More

Itinerary Berlin 4 days and Welcome Card (1 Replies)
Hello! We are going to Berlin in early may, we'll stay 4 nights and have booked at the Melia (so relatively close to almost everything). I want to ask you if it is advisable to buy a Welcome Card (for 72 hours with Museumisland) or not. We want to visit Pergamon and Neues Museum, Berliner Dom and maybe Alexanderplatz's tower and use the card for transportation to go to a Unterwelten tour (by metro) and maybe to Sachsensausen or Postdam in the afternoon. By the way, if we don't have time for...More

When does Kunstgewerbemuseum (Kulturforum) reopen? (4 Replies)
Hi, we'll be in Berlin in October 2013 and would love to see the Kunstgewerbemuseum in the Kulturforum (am aware of the separate section at Kopenick). I gather it closed in early 2012 for major renovations but I wonder if Berlin experts have any info on its likely reopening date? Even the website is under renovation so is of no help right now. Thankyou

I checked numerous references in German including the entire Staatliche Museen zu Berlin website, and there's no word on a re-opening date that I could find. I guess you'll have to be content with the Schloss Koepenick location.
