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 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.
  • nice place to have a free view. on the top of the building, i can enjoy the whole middle berlin.
  • 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.
  • Presents vivid history and reconstruction of the formerly in the middle of the Spree Island between the pleasure garden in the North, the Castle freedom on the Spree Canal in the West and the historic castle square in the South of currently, blown up after damage in the second world war by the Politburo of the Central Committee of the SED, and currently rebuilt (neo) baroque city Palace as the former residence of the elector of Brandenburg and Prussian Kings and endpoint of the Boulevard at Unter den Linden.
