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.

  • Great place for any musician / amateur / hobbyist to visit! Learned a lot and enjoyed the museum. There are so many instruments and you get a good audio guide.  more »

  • Although the instruments and facilities were beautiful, the staff, from front desk, to security were very rude. Not only were they on helpful in regards to the museums fine pieces, but they follow the patrons closely behind (like within 6 feet) and create an intimidating, on welcoming environment. If you enjoy musical instruments, I would encourage you to see them, but be prepared to be followed closely by the lesbian musical gestapo....
  • A very hostile environment was created by staff who followed us and glared at us at every turn. The icy hosts vastly outnumbered the patrons so perhaps we were their only amusement. At the first moment we entered the main hall we were barked at by a woman on a balcony to put our bags in lockers, their location indicated with a vague gesture. Surely the man at the front desk could have mentioned this was compulsory. The instruments themselves were very beautiful but seemed half pointless when there was no way to listen to them (specifically the synthesiser exhibition). The staff made us feel like we were an unwanted element in their rarified environment so we left, very disappointed.
  • The audio samples were good, but it was a bit boring and hard to decide which order to visit objects in. Too many harpsichords compared to other instruments, but the art on the older instruments was breathtaking and the large church organ imposing. If you're gonna go, I recommend getting the tour where they actually play some of the instruments, so you can experience them in use.
  • You cannot enjoy the museum if 1. You dont speak german 2. You are not into intruments massively 3. You get bored easily The thing about this museum is its better described as a piano shop with no price tag. You are not allow to touch anything apart from 1 % of what they show. English help was minimal if you ask me. The English version was shorter than the german version on most cards. Rather than explaining what are the differences, they just tell you this was own by so and so... Visited April 2017
  • Current special exhibition is a history of electoral musical instruments, ideal for synth geeks.
