    It is a bit of a journey to get this far out but the reviews are great and the subject matter is interesting so we came and we were not disappointed. There is an awful lot to see so luckily we didn't get sidetracked by the exhibition outside. The entrance at 10 Euros is quite reasonable. We paid extra for the audio tour which wasn't really necessary as it doesn't add anything to the information on display which is in German and English. The audio tour would be good if you have limited time as you will get the main highlights without the depth. The galleries are over 3 floors and they are packed with information and exhibits. There is so much to take in and it is all absolutely fascinating. The middle floor has been left as it was in 1990 and is the office space, meeting rooms and also accommodation of the Director and key figures. On the third floor there is a very long and informative video to watch that brings together what you have learnt. The only thing that is missing is a proper cafe and also a shop. There is a place on the third floor to get a cup of tea / coffee or cold drink and a chocolate bar but nothing more. We spent nearly 5 hours here.

    Free museum that has some spectacular cars in show. A little out of the way, but well worth it for any car enthusiast. Excellent range of cars on show. Most enjoyable

    The place where you can breathe freely, you can take a long walk through the park, relax and take beautiful photos, a quiet place that you can't stop visiting!

    This place is not free, unlike other sites in Berlin. The audio guide is included in the price. No photography or videography allowed. For a thorough visit, plan around 4-5 hours.

    The tour of Templehoft is definitely still available. We selected an English language tour and this was led by a friendly and knowledgeable Dutchman.
    Unfortunately the main hall is currently not open to visitors but, other than this, the tour is an illuminating and unusual way to learn more about the history of Berlin in the twentieth century.
    There is a reasonable amount of walking and stairs involved - all well worth it.

    Berlin’s Botanic Garden is truly large and diverse with 20 000 different species of plants on 43 hectares. Some of the paths are under construction, but the stroll is nevertheless rewarding. Several clean toilets are available. Very worth the visit even when the weather is not good, thanks to the several greenhouses. They are well maintained and the routes are nicely guided. Although The Botanic Garden is not centrally situated, it is easily reached with U-or S-Bahn. The day ticket costs 6 euros.

    A wonderful and important museum. It's tiny but extremely impactful and perfect for a solo traveler to spend an hour or two. It is tiny, so I got sandwiched between some tour groups, but it was actually nice to be able to hear the guides! If you are at all interested in history, and even if you aren't, this should be on your list for Berlin.

    A very interesting site. It's amazing that the site and access looks so ordinary and yet it is a very special place. Even in glorious sunshine it is a chilling place.

    This is an exceptional museum! Some people have reported that there is not much information in English, but actually all of the cards and museum "info" is translated into English. Original documents (letters, newspapers, etc.) are not translated, but all the stories are.

    It is incredibly informative, and I think you need to plan for 2 hours at least. I did not budget enough time here, so I am left to do research on my own, but it really provides a good story of the German people who were against Hitler from the beginning. This is a side of the story that we don't hear enough about. And it wasn't just organizations, but average people who knew something wasn't right and tried to do something about it at great personal risk and cost.

    Museum has excellent exibits on life in the former DDR. Cold War enthusiasts will find the many displays very interesting. Located in the far back corner of the Kulturbrauerei complex. Elevators and HC accessible.

    The history of German aviation all in one place, located in Gatow on the fringes of Berlin.
    Located on an old military airfield, there are indoor and outdoor displays & you can get guided tours if you book in advance. Plenty of WWII aircraft and lots post war planes as well.

    Part of the State Museum system, this museum houses one of the world's largest collections of Picassos and Paul Klees, as well as an impressive number of Cezannes. The Picassos are arranged in chronological order, so that the one can compare his early work to his later and also notice how Picasso returned to some of his early themes later in life. The temporary exhibit of paintings and constructions by mid-20th-Century Swiss-born artist Peter Thompkins was also worthwhile. BTW: I tried to figure out how to alert TripAdvisor that this fine museum is NOT closed but couldn't figure out how to do so.

    This is the best area to see what East Berlin looked like before the wall came down. This is what the entire area looked like. Its drab and dreary but cool by today's standards.

    An important cold war relic. If the graffiti and entry fee don't appeal it is visible from the S Bahn on route to Olympic Stadium.
