Interesting galleries

We spent a good couple of hours in the beautifully presented galleries. The 'Leaving is Entering' exhibition from 1961-68 we found particularly engaging.

It's probably a very good museum if you are a fan of Newton. For a novice like me you will see his jet set friends gallery portrait. The price is quite expensive for so little amount of interesting photos ( meaning no famous people on it)

Ok, I'll admit it. I love naked women. It is what it is. I'm genetically wired that way. And Helmut Newton gives me what I want. The Foundation is really a museum housing Newton's personal collection including, of course, original photographs as well as his displays of his camera equipment, and so on. When he was active, digital photography didn't... More

Rotation showing of other photographers are as well interesting making this a joy for a budding photographer. In the same vicinity is Berlin C/O that boast a variety... More

Always impressed with Helmut Newton, I was excited to see this. And I was more than impressed. It was well set out, great works! Would definitely recommend it if you are interested in fashion, photography and legends.

Went to see the permanent collection and also the Alice Springs portraits. Helmet Newton "Yellow press" collection was somewhat disturbing but in line with his other work. Never really understood why portraiting naked women and more than flirting with pornographic themes has been considered art. As such, Helmut Newton-works were as we were expecting. Alice Springs portraits were much more... More

We expected to see more of his photographs but instead saw a lot about his private life, items etc as well as an exibition with photos by his wife. Not much in English.

You can find so many interesting stuff about Helmut Newton's personal life and how he treated his friends or clients.. There are several letters with his personal handwritting.. There are also many photographs but I felt that it could have had much more of his work or some of the films made for him! They could just have a screening... More

Great stop for those interested in photography and fashion. Loved seeing the evolution of his photography, as well as learning his story, including his last name change from Neustädter to Newton. Included in the Museum Pass.

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighbourhood Profile
Charlottenburg
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.
