I've been at the Martin-Gropius-Bau palace for the Diane Arbus exhibition in 2012 and then for the Pina Bausch one. Really a wonderful place and great cultural offer.

The exhibition was very inspiring for me. I also liked the space, rooms and overall architecture of building.

Until January 9th, Martin Gropius Bau hosts the Pina Bausch exhibition. Don't miss it ! You can appreciate pictures, leaflets, videos of her work, but also her methods, her views, how she created pieces, and - I think this is the clever and fantastic part of the exhibition - you can dance ! You have warm ups and 3 hours... More

I have visited this at gallery at least three times, and it is amazing every time! Recently I have seen Pina Bausch - astonishing! And also Art at the GDR, worth it even though there are no texts in English. Be aware that each exhibition will take at least two hours, so make sure you manage your time well when... More

You will not miss seeing this building, when visiting the Topography of Terror museum. In a city, which has been damaged heavily during the WWII, seeing a historical looking building is a novelty. The building holds varying exhibitions. During our visit, there was an exhibition on Maya Culture. If you do not want to pay the steep admission fee, you... More

This building is very close to Potsdamer Platz and has been known for its amazing exhibitions for a long time. The architecture is lovely and the rooms for the exhibits are really amazing! Every exhibition I have seen here was really worth going to see! The entry is pretty high (today I paid 10 € for 35 pictures of a... More

Visited the photography exhibition of Thomas Struth. It was very impressive. The collection, the curating and the exhibition room were all with very high standard. However I would say it's over-priced, even taking consideration of the fact that it's a private gallery.

Extraordinary! This was probably the most perfectly arranged exhibition I have ever visited. Precise annotations of what you can see offer deeper understanding. The collection is beautiful and abundant. There is a bookshop and a restaurant. Art history books, some souvenirs, exhibition catalogues. The restaurant is probably the only reason for lower rating - I understand the waiting staff is... More

This place do not work like a single museum but rather as a venue for different exibitions that you have to pay for individually (each costed like 6-10€) and if you want to see all of them you can easilly pay in total more than you would for entering the louvre in Paris etc so seriously overpriced compared to much...

Staying in Kreuzberg

Neighbourhood Profile
Berlin's revolutionary heart and immigrant roots can both be found in Kreuzberg, but this central neighbourhood is beginning a new chapter. In the 1950s and '60s, Turkish guest workers settled around Kottbusser Tor, while in the 1980s and '90s, rambunctious squatters and artists gathered to live a carefree life here. An old hospital even became a hotspot of riots between squatters and police. Today you can still find the best kebabs in town and many underground clubs, but a lot has changed as well. The hospital has been transformed into an art center, and increasingly you will find new urban cafés, restaurants and designer shops. Rising housing prices and gentrification threaten the spirit of this area along the Spree River, but the neighbourhood’s legacy is upheld by a very engaged community fighting to preserve its rebellious identity.
