  • It is not a matter if the place is beautiful or not: it is fantastic from the point of view of the architecture. Stop. You pay 5/6€ to see almost nothing: 3 rooms and a badly organized exposition. But...  more »
  • The New Synagogue Berlin is an interesting building to visit if you are in the museum island. It was the only synagogue to survive ( lots of damage) and the front and roff rebuilt.  more »
  • If you love great architecture like me you will appreciate this building. Most of the information is in German. You don't get to see a lot of the inside.  more »

  • Okay, building looks awesome from the street but the exhibitions aren't so interesting as the memorial monument
  • It looks amazing from the outside. Unfortunately, I didn't get to go in.
  • This is an absolute rip-off. Don't even bother paying to see the Dome, it's an empty room, with a limited view of the city. You can't take pictures of course, which makes sense since any photo would undoubtedly show you how scandalous this is.
  • A beautiful old synagogue, with (sadly)always police in front of it. They have an very interesting exhibition too, where you can learn something about the old Jewish life in Berlin. Recommendation
  • You'll know when your in the vicinity of this place thanks to the presence of the police who seem to be ever present at any Jewish site around Berlin. #Sobering I didn't go in due to the large bus party already queued up. But the outside of the building is an architectural delight with some useful info boards outside to provide plenty of background info and old pics.

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.
