  • Went to find out when you are finished with the construction of the Humboldt-Forum, and it turned out that the inside is a lot of interesting places. On the last floor is completely free to climb the observation deck. We were in January, may, therefore. Before that I read in reviews that the lookout was paid. Specify.

  • It is generally an excellent initiative to rebuild the old Royal Palace, and we must hope that there are also means to reconstruct some of the original halls and rooms. Exhibition-including model of Berlin in 1900 and examples of architecture-is nice, and there are good and knowledgeable guides, including older people who have experienced that the castle was torn down.

  • 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.
