The collection here is incredible. There may be no DaVinci’s or Michelangelo’s but there’s ever other master you’d ever want to view. Every item is almost extraordinary and worth looking at …the curator is to be congratulated. Best of all no crowds. We went after...More

This museum has many marvelous and very rare paintings, and a very wide selection. All are very well presented and lighted, and the museum is just the right size, with no second rank paintings displayed, so every painting is excellent

The collection of paintings spans from the 13th to the 19th Centuries. I could not believe that on a Sunday, there were so few people. There are lockers to store your personal belongings. The Cafe was neither good nor bad.

Very good place, but be ready to find the gem you are looking for through the numerous halls. That's not a problem if you have got plenty of time, but if not - get your guide ready.

Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through
the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which
lends its name to this well-heeled neighbourhood.
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
