Poor Museum
Nov 2016 • Couples
We were very disappointed from the
museum. We had visited the others
Guggenheim museums in New York,
Bilbao,Venice, and we found that the
museum in Berlin was very poor.
Also its building is much more inferior
from the others.

Not the Guggenheim any more

It's now called the Deutsche Bank Kunsthalle with no mention of its previous incarnation as the Guggenheim! Still €4 and free on Monday. Nice little gallery if you like the art!

Although I am not an art maniac or anything I actually really enjoyed being in there and seeing the exhibition that at was that time. Its quite small but I didn't care since the time I had was limited. I like very much the cafeteria in the back where you can rest for a while, drink coffee, read magazines and/or purchase souvenirs(they are a little expencieve though). Last but not least, its free on Mondays(yeah!!) but usually there are quite a lot people waiting to get inside in front of you. But the waiting time its little

Not worth the time
Dec 2012 • Couples
Unless you are walking by anyway--it is not worth a extra trip--we made a special trip to that part of town to come to the museum and the "tour" took about 10 minutes since the whole place is two rooms.

Friendly spot!
Jan 2013 • Solo
Although rather small (maybe due to the fact it's a whole former private collections thing), this museum offers excellent exhibitions! Mondays are free, which means you'll probably find a queue, but it's not too long until you're inside. If you're lucky (or curious) enough you'll find some really friendly guides making passionate and interactive explanations on the pictures. Definitely worth a visit!

Small exhibit, free on Mondays
This museum is in fact a small exhibits od impressionist and modern art works from famous artists... Those artists were often prolific and also produced materiel that is not (in my opinion) so great; and that's what is displayed.
I would not pay to visit this place, but would still recommend to spend 20 minutes there on a Monday, when entrance is free.

Good little museum
Jan 2013 • Couples
The museum is free to all on Mondays. It is very small and offers some masterpieces such as Van Gogh, Chagall, Cezanne. It is a quick trip, but got us out of the wind and snow.

An important exhibition in a marvellous space
Jan 2013 • Solo
I'm writing this review to counter the various misconceptions I found when I looked at the previous reviews before visiting the Deutsche Guggenheim last week. I was surprised then at some of the negative comments and complaints I read. Now, having been there and having seen the current exhibition, I am more than surprised, I'm astonished. Of course some of the statements that were made were opinions, to which their owners are entitled; but some were simply wrong. So let's set the record straight.

The complaints about the gallery's small size are wide of the mark. The Berlin Guggenheim isn't a large museum like the New York and Bilbao Guggenheims, and doesn't pretend or claim to be. It's a gallery, an exhibition space, and it's a particularly good exhibition space: simply and beautifully made, welcoming and encompassable, not daunting, well lit, and ideal for showing paintings.

The current exhibition, Visions of Modernity is ravishing. The reviewer who complains that that there aren't enough paintings in it is perhaps just greedy: there are at least 40 paintings to be seen, and anyone who can look at 40 paintings in less than two hours - most people's limit for looking - isn't looking properly.

The poster who says that "the paintings by well known artists were not of their better works bar one or two and had a 'let's fill a room' feel to them" is seriously mistaken: most of the works are among the best that the painters made. That includes the Cézanne, the Rousseau, the Bonnard, the Seurats, the Monet, the Van Gogh (atypical but wonderful and subtle) the Chagall - I could go on almost indefinitely.

The poster who says that the Deutsche Guggenheim has nothing to do with "the real Guggenheim" is wrong. The New York Guggengeim collection is vast. Instead of hiding the works they haven't room to show in the stacks, loan them to their satellites in Berlin, Bilbao, and Venice,enabling people who don't live in or visit New York to see them. Most of the paintings in the current exhibition come from the New York collection; some are from the Venice collection.

Visions of Modernity is an important exhibition, one of the most exciting in Berlin at the moment. No-one who is interested in art should miss it, so if you are in Berlin before it closes on 17 February, go.

Here is a link to the website, if you'd like more information before deciding - the video is worth watching too.

Great modern collection
Great, but not big collection (only 2 rooms). It?s situated in one of the main streets, so the location is great and eaasy to find. Worth visiting and the price is more than ok (4? adults)

Visions of Modernity
Dec 2012 • Friends
Visions of Modernity was a small visiting exhibition at the Guggenheim Berlin on Unter den Linden in the building belonging to Deutche Bank. It included paintings by some of my favourite artists such as Joan Miró and Robert Delaunay and introduced me to a wonderful painting by Franz Marc. Apparently on Mondays the entrance is free. We queued for about half an hour which was quite ok and it was certainly well worth the wait in the December cold of Berlin.
