Museum

Berlin obviously has a huge array of museums that makes it not easy to choose something that is really worthwhile, so I like to help you with a personal selection.

History:

Unterwelten:

An adventurous bunker trip through underground Berlin, especially the tour in the Flaktowers is really worthe. At the Gesundbrunnen S-Bahn station in the district of the same name.

 

 

Deutsche Technik Museum:

An Extra Large Museum (5 buildings) filled with airplanes, boats, trains, cars of German design, plus so much more. It’s easy to get yourself going for half a day before you get back out. Don’t forget to visit the technological part, all kinds of fun interactive scientific experiments with sound, liquid, colours, a giant playground for old and young. At U Bahn station Gleisdreieck in Kreuzberg.

 

 

Topography des terrors:

 

The contemporary art museum of Berlin is set in a former train station . Unique experience and location !ee Museum for anyone who wants to learn about the Nazi regime (1933-45) built on the site of the former Gestapo head office in the old government district of the Third Reich.There is also a part of the Berlin Wall near the museum. To S and U Bahnhof Potsdamerplatz in the Niederkirchnerstrasse 8 in Mitte

 

Tränenpalast:

A former checkpoint for train passengers who wanted to visit the GDR. A free museum and excellent alternative to the DDR museum.  The museum guards also date from that period so you will feel right back in time. To S Bahnhof Friedrichstrasse

 

 

 

Naturkundemuseum:

Maybe a surprising choice, but definitely a must. Where else do you find an intact skeleton of a gigantic Brachiosaurus and a T-Rex with the lovely name Tristan? A childhood’s dream will undoubtedly be fulfilled… Also the famous polar bear Knut stands here in his taxodermian version so admire his last resting place. Invalidenstraße 43 in Mitte near U Bahn Naturkundemuseum.

 

 

Neue Museum:

In the shadow of the famous Pergamonmuseum is perhaps the best museum of the famous Museum Island in Berlin. Not only can you admire the bust of the Egyptian queen Nefertiti (1 of the absolute top pieces throughout Berlin).  There are also many other Egyptian archaeological finds to be admired. Museum Island in Mitte near S Bahn Hakescher market.

 

 

 

Deutsches Historical Museum :

In the building where the former Prussian armour Arsenal was housed, the entire German history of times can now be admired. Ideal for this museum is that it is a good abstraction of the many other museums in Berlin; It’s like it were all in a nutshell. Including memorabilia from the time of Crusades, Prussian time, Nazi period, DDR, the fall of the wall. Unter den Linden 2 in Mitte near S Bahn Hakescher market

 

Contemporary Art:

  • Hamburger Bahnhof:

You can call the Museum of Contemporary Art in Berlin, located in a beautiful location in a former train station. a big name in the art world. Masterpiece is the great Mao by Andy Warhol, there is also a full section on Joseph Beuys. Invalidenstraße 50-51 in Moabit near the Hauptbahnhof.

  • Martin Gropius Bau:

A personal favorite, a museum where large touring exhibitions around famous artists from the most diverse fields are held, genre Stanley Kubrick, David Bowie, Pina Bausch retrospectives. Niederkirchnerstraße 7 in Kreuzberg near S Bahn Potsdammerplatz

  •  Berlinic Gallery: 

Numerous top exhibitions made by leading curators have already been shown here, one of those museums where you will always be stumble upon quality. In short, everything a good museum for contemporary art can offer. Alte Jakobstraße 124-128 Kreuzberg U Bahn Kochstrasse

  •  C/O Berlin (America Haus):

Focuses mainly on photo exhibitions and often big names like Anton Corbijn, one of those museums where you can really feel the Big City vibe and adventure in the shadow of Bahnhof Zoo. Hardenbergstraße 22-24 Charlottenburg U Bahn Zoologischer Garten
