A project of the Berlin City Palace, Humboldt-Box is a futuristic museum that displays the city's collection of Asian art, ethnographic artifacts, and Prussian objects. The octagon-shaped, glass building is surrounded by manicured lawns that are covered with residents' picnic blankets on fair-weather days. A restaurant with a terrace overlooking the lawns is on the attraction's top floor. Enjoy a glass of German wine there after touring the eclectic collections inside the large, open rooms.

  • The Humboldt Box gives a terrific view of the development of the reconstruction of the Berlin Palace in the center of Berlin a its future development as a center for the Humboldt Forum and as a museum...  more »
  • Next to the Stadtschloss in construction. Nice view from the 5th floor. Interesting documentation centre on the 1st floor with a fantastic scale model of Center Berlin the beginning of the 20th century. Free!

  • Admission is free (and God forbid even) for a structure that, on five floors, it includes three completely empty, one with panoramic terrace in at a bar (which was closed) and another, the first, with projects than you will. Which, if you're not familiar with the German, are impossible to decipher. No sense getting in. Which is unfortunate, because he could be exploited better.

  • 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.
