  • Surprise inside, raw and makeshift, but..., first, that it is so large it and so it exhibits, exhibitions and food. Information about the Castle, its history and the reconstruction, also at the ethnographic museum, communicated in English. OK Beautiful views, unfortunately I was for rain, which blocked the panorama. Restaurant with good food. Only the waiters such serious and weren't paying attention, that some one would add wine. And it was good.

  • Great views on the upper terrasse of the building. Nice jewlery in the store on the 1st floor.
  • nice place to have a free view. on the top of the building, i can enjoy the whole middle berlin.
  • The place is woth a visit. They have a model of old Berlin with explanation about the old palace that was taken down after WWII by the comunists. There is also an excellent view from the top balcony and the café on the top floor is very good.
  • Great views.
  • If you are looking for a good view to the city, then this is a perfect place for you! If you are thinking on going to the restaurant, then I would not suggest. Service is VERY BAD. Museum has some interesting things, but when you will be walking around you will feel that you are internment, because security is following you everywhere. It's almost like you have a personal security with you. It has 2 stars only because of the view.
