I didn't know what to expect to Monsterkabinett, but I didn't search for information and it was good choice. Its very surrealistic experience, quite short but very intensive. The name of the place explains itself what you will see. So, don't read bad reviews, if you search for something different and unexpected, you will love this place.

The place itself is amazing, the wall art outside, the bars, the graffitti and all is just amazing! However, DO NOT attend the "monsters show", it will be the worst 8 euros you'll spend (6 if you're a student). The 'monsters' are funny looking, show is very crappy and they over sell it.

We stumbled on this place by accident. It is a short robotic "Monster" cabaret put on by some local artists. The "guide" was really passionate about the show and really played the role. It isn't very long, but was long enough. I think the admission is about the price of a cocktail at most bars in Mitte. We thought the... More

Went here with my girlfriend. Thought might be fun and a little creepy. It was just so weird. The 'monsters' are well built but gets pretty boring doing the same thing. The guide spoke in both german and English but I really didn't know what was going on. The mirror room at the end goes on for over 5 mins... More

If you can find this place nested behind the Anne Frank, it's worth seeing. It's a fun walk through a wacky museum of robotic monsters. What's not to like?

You can tell a lot of work has gone into producing this and they are passionate about the project. Entertaining and gripping through out, perfect for anyone who loves things a bit weird and wonderful! Highly recommended if you're into all things quirky and robotic :D

Overall, it is a lovely show. You enter a dark room in which there is a show of monster-like robots, including multiple musical and visual effects. There is a guide who adds funny comments and makes the show more entertaining. The robots themselves are a masterpiece both of engineering and art. Being an engineer myself I can easily appreciate the... More

Historically mad bunch of robots - clearly seines passion project. Excellently made, very entertaining if a bit short/pricey. Amazing if you are not square and have a good imagination you can let run wild. Definitely go have a drink in the bar ext to it and explore the alley as well. There is a lovely book shop above the monster... More

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.
