  • A beautiful bright building to fund a court skirmishes are uneven or at least are not all taken interesting however advantage also audiences and a coffee in a large alcove window in front of the entrance to recover from his emotions

  • poorly managed and just not that interesting I visited when it was free entry, I would have been hugely disappointed had I paid EUR 8  more »
  • The space was wide and clean allowing each piece/pieces of work to make a statement in the room. The short films were quite interesting, especially those that provided audio headsets. I found it to be...  more »

  • Only after paying the 8 euro's did they tell me that only 1 floor was open. Nice space though. Although I found it a bit weird how they waited for me to walk into the remaining display area before talking about the art work in English.
  • Amazing place! 3 amazing expositions and a lot of information about them. People who work there are really gentle and attentive
  • How much you like this place depends entirely on what they're showing. I'm not a huge fan of political activist art or video art which seem to be specialities. I also don't like art that needs to be explained so was a bit shocked when I -- a long-time art aficionado -- had absolutely no clue about at least half of the pieces. (An uninspiring sculpture reminiscent of Brancusi was maybe about the DNA of HIV or held ashes of Buddha or something? And that square on the floor was the same size as Nelson Mandela's cell? Hold my coat because I'm about to pass out.) Otherwise, with four floors this is a nice-sized place, though the architecture isn't interesting enough to warrant a visit.
  • Wonderful three-floor conceptual art exhibition space. Never been to any institution like this. Wonderful wonderful wonderful.
  • This was so disappointing. The space available is vast and contemporary, but the installations were absolutely abysmal and extremely sparse. It was laughable. Seriously over priced as well. I would sincerely reconsider coming here unless there is something specific you wish to see.

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.
