A compact and interesting presentation of a true statesman, Willy Brandt. Or a man of many states - both personally and internationally. I started to watch the well made document film of Bradnt. It took time but it was well worth it. After you remembered better the big picture, the exhibition gave you more - details and background. You may... More

Willy Brant was a central figure in the quest for Democracy in Berlin. For the scholar and anyone else interested in how political things developped in Berlin in the last decades.

Being much interested in European history, I knew the name of Willy Brandt and his contribution to the history of Berlin, Germany and the world. It is interesting to visit this 'Forum' to see how people look at him from the socialist perspective. However, this perspective also puts his opponents in a certain light, which is not always fair or... More

We stumbled on the Willy Brandt museum by accident whilst walking to the Brandenburg Gate. It tells the story of Willy Brandt and Berlin from the 1930s until the reunification of Germany in 1990. It makes clear what happened and why and its impact on Berlin. It made everything else we saw so much clearer. Definitely go and see it.... More

On a cold December day in Berlin I was walking away from the Brandenburg Gate down the Unter den Linden, looking for a place to escape the crowds and warm myself up and came across this place. It's 100% free and it tells the story of the former SPD mayor of West Berlin and reforming German chancellor, Willy Brandt. OK... More

Right on the Unter den Linden this is a well done and organized museum. Did not stay for long, but he was a major leader of the early days after the war.

Staying in Mitte

Neighbourhood Profile
Mitte
The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighbourhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
