  • The cafe is at teh back of the theatre, looking at the River Spree. We stopped for lunch and had very reasonable price and good quality drinks and sandwiches, with lots of choice. Service was friendly...  more »
  • The House of world cultures is at the Zoo on the spree. Once the building was built by the Americans, as a contribution to any exhibition. At some point, the roof collapsed. Today, the "pregnant Oyster" is redeveloped. It exhibitions and other events take place in it. Visited I have none. But nevertheless, a visit is interesting because the building is architecturally interesting, or one is thirsty and drink a beer in the restaurant on the river Spree page.

  • We were told that HKW didn't get too much traffic because it is somewhat isolated from other sites but that is precisely the charm. Plan your trip here to soak in what's on the program but also to tak...  more »

  • Interesting building with works of modern art exhibitions, only for modern and art lovers who can understand weird things....
  • The interior is weird, so is the architecture, I feel taken back in time and it ain't pretty. They host nice events sometimes and you can sit outside and listen to bell-play some days in the summer.
  • Interesting place, but almost always deserted
  • Nice building with lots of seating. Only downside is that it's a bit out of the way
  • Wonderful architecture!!! Near is a great sculpture of Henry Moore!

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.
