Beautiful Building But Closed (ZU)

Unfortunately it was closed for refurbishment while we were there, but it's worth a visit to see one of the earliest examples of modern architecture. It's an incredible building.

Checked on different sites. Misleading information. Went for a walk 35 centigrades. Museum closed for reconstruction. Pergamon also partially closed. A bit of a shame really for Berlin

Closed for the public as the structure is under renovation, a worth visit and an urban precinct to explore even in it's present condition. The Sculpture square adjacent gives a clear perspective of the erstwhile divide of the city and the urban layers that were lost. A walk to the gallery past other great architectural landmarks is an experience

Seriously enjoyed our whole experience here. The building works on many levels, and has been restored magnificently. The collection is engrossing and lovingly and thoughtfully presented. Staff are pleasant and helpful. Needed more time. Allow four hours at least for a half decent look. Highly recommended.

Currently it is under renovation. Hopefully not in that way as nowadays they do it in Berlin - nearly everything is delayad by years. The building is one of the last plan of Mies an der Rohe, and you can still see, how it was nice. Some years ago, we visited the great collection was they have.

We got off a tour bus especially to see the modern ort on show at this gallery only to find it standing deserted and completely empty. Further enquiries led us to understand that it has been closed for some time and is to undergo renovation which will see it remain closed for some years to come. I hope that someone... More

It was built in 1968, and is currently closed for in order to "repair all damaged features and correct serious safety deficits". There was no information on its planned opening.

Although the Museum is currently closed, the building is still well worth a visit. Designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and opened in 1968, it is one of his most iconic buildings. The sculptures round the building, including pieces by Henry Moore and Alexander Calder, are still there and worth a visit by themselves. I hope to return once... More

We were fortunate to catch this Museum on its last open day before a multi-year closure for renovations. The lines were out the door, but our Museum Pass allowed us to skip straight to the exhibition space. The building is essentially a huge glass box centered on a paved court. The architectural uniqueness continued inside, as the contents of the... More

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighbourhood Profile
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 down Kurfürstendamm, the most renowned high-end shopping street in Berlin, where you can find all the big designer names. In the evening, visit one of the old theatres close by Zoo Station which were nightlife hot spots in the 1920s, or dine in one of the many international restaurants around Savignyplatz before heading to other parts of town for a night out.
