TOP 5 CULTURAL MUSEUMS

Berlin is home to more than 170 museums and galleries… so yes any art aficionado is going to need more than one trip here! While tourist-trap exhibits are inevitable, browsing further a field is never too difficult in a city as diverse as this, if you read on...

Gemaeldegalerie

art gallery - Culture - history

When it comes to art, this can be considered as one of Germany’s finest museums. Holding one of the world’s finest collections of European art from the 13th to the 18th century. Among the almost 3000 paintings you’ll find masterpieces by the likes of Dürer, Rembrandt, and Rubens.

New Museums

art gallery - Culture - history

Inside this stunning building you’ll find a vast collection of Egyptian art and classical antiquities, including the bust of Nefertiti. Having been bombed in 1945, British architect David Chipperfield refurbed it using recycled bricks, whilst retaining some original elements. Leaving a mix of old and new for architectural junkies.

Jewish Museums

museum - Culture - history 

The permanent exhibition focuses on Jewish life in Germany through history, with artworks, texts, and plenty of interactive elements. Of course, the museum also explores the devastating period for Jews in Berlin leading up to and during WW2, so certainly not something for the faint hearted! 

DDR

museum - easy going - lively

Bring out the kid in you at this noisy, lively, and altogether quite unexpected space filled with gaudy wallpaper, East German pop music, and fun-filled learning interactions. An ideal date spot to break the ice! 

Topography of Terror

museum - Culture - history

A museum where the Nazi regime once stood. Beware: this museum is harrowing for even an Ice Queen, but it’s one of the few places in Berlin where you get the crude appreciation of Berlin’s history during WWII. The museum explores both the rise of the Nazi party and its war atrocities.
