This is one of the best hidden gems in Berlin. If you love applied Arts this is the museum to go to. It had a fabulous collection of gold/silver objects, furniture, costumes, fashion and best part was there are more museums near by to add...More

This museum has one of the best collections of applied arts that I have seen. Gold, ivory and wood from all ages are on display. We spent most of our time on the collection from the middle ages and had to miss out on the...More

From the medieval Welfenschatz (Guelph treasure) to twentieth-century ceramics and glass, this is a splendid collection of treasures from many centuries. Though clearly not as popular as the Gemaeldegalerie to which it is connected by an underground passage, the Museum of Applied Art will prove...More

This museum looks at items such as glass, metal, porcelain, fashion, etc. It covers the period from the Middle Ages to now. The best parts are the Art Nouveau section on the top floor, just outside the main galleries. Then the works in the Medieval...More

Museum of Applied Art is one of the museums inside Kuturforum complex, it is in a separate wing from the more famous (and very popular) Gemäldegalerie. All museums in Kuturforum complex are a part of the 20+ museums that belong to "State Museums of Berlin"...More

This museum is part of the Kulturforum, a short walk from Potsdamer Platz and next to the Gemäldegalerie. The rather ugly 1960s-style building houses an interesting exhibition of decorative arts - religious artefacts, furniture, porcelain and fashion. The collection is large but there was nothing...More

There's a lot of textiles, some you can try on (good for kids). There's a lot of design. I enjoyed the finished and unfinished versions of some of the pottery. Interesting. It's worth a drive by especially if you get a museum card (I did...More

A very nice selection of pottery and glassware from medieval times through Art Nouveau. I also loved the fashion section. The dresses, shoes and menswear were attractively displayed and it was interesting to see the changes throughout the years.

The stark concrete exterior of the museum, part of the Kulturforum complex, is in surprising contrast to the splendours within. We visited twice, to see the medieval and then the modern galleries. (Easy journey by tram from the Zoo, Philharmonie stop.) The oldest exhibits, magnificent...More

Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through
the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which
lends its name to this well-heeled neighbourhood.
Here you'll find some of the oldest homes in the city:
upper-class apartment buildings with ornate facades
and marble-floored foyers line the cobblestone
streets. Stroll by sophisticated restaurants, through
little parks, or around Lake Lietzensee. Window shop
