The Berlinische Galerie is one of the newest museums in the German capital and collects art from Berlin dating from 1870 to the present day - with both a local and international focus. Founded in 1975, the State Museum reopened in its own building close to the Jewish Museum in 2004, moving into a spacious industrial hall that has been rebuilt to provide 4,600 square metres of exhibition space. Fine art - painting, graphics, sculpture, multimedia - photography, architecture and artists' archives provide a rich source, whose interdisciplinary relationships create exciting dialogues. Its outstanding collections include Dada Berlin, the Neue Sachlichkeit (New Objectivity) and the Eastern European avant-garde. The art of he divided and reunified city of Berlin provides another focus.

Pros: The permanent collection is a good snapshot of Berlin art from across the past century; the special exhibition on Jeanne Mammen was impressive in terms of the scale and quality. Cons: It might not be worth it to go all the way out here...More

I recommend catching the extensive Jeanne Mammen exhibition if you can. The gallery is an unexpected delight (particularly as the other major modern Berlin art gallery, the Neue Nationalgalerie, remains closed).

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
