#52 of 120 in Museums in Berlin
Take a journey in time through Berlin at Berlin Story. Thirty stations within the museum are replete with floor-to-ceiling photographs, films, sculptures, and artifacts to guide you through Berlin's involvement in World War II, the split between East and West Germany, and more. Each station has its own film of exactly 100 seconds, produced especially for the museum, as well as an audio guide in 10 different languages. An onsite cinema shows a film titled “The Making of Berlin,” as well as a documentary about the Berlin Wall. Visitors love this attraction for its manageable size and exhaustive attention to detail.

  • I ve bought feel thing there, good very good
  • A lot of books and a free movie about the Berlin Wall
  • cool
  • Well, the exhibition is itself quite well - but still expandable for my terms, especially the audio guide information. Too bad that the guides are those who work only until 15: 00 - bad luck has had.

Where to stay in Berlin

The Kreuzberg neighborhood near the Oberbaumbrüke bridge is central and full of Berlin icons: street art, a piece of the Berlin Wall, the East Side Gallery, and a proliferation of cafes. Friedrichshain is another option with a hip vibe due to the students who congregate at its cafes and galleries. Consider Mitte as a historic home base. Mitte is the area where almost all of Berlin's well-known buildings are located, and it is within walking distance of Alexanderplatz. For a peaceful residential area, try Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf where the streets are lined with boutiques and quiet coffee shops.
