We were given a guided tour in English by a lovely lady, who was very knowledgeable about the life of Brecht and Weigel. The house is small and in immaculate condition, left completely untouched since Brecht died there. Max. 8 people per tour but it...More

I can't recommend this enough. Whether you've got a knowledge of Brecht or not, it is both fascinating insight into the man and his wife as well as an extraordinary and amusing journey into the lives of an eccentric couple who loved one another in...More

It's hard to write a general review, because our experience of this location is so much coloured by our theatre background, and the fact that it is inextricably linked to a whole day's sightseeing which included Brecht's grave and a second row seats to see...More

Check opening times before you go, I was caught out in one visit. If you are interested in Brecht then it is good to see where he once lived and worked. You are guided through so can ask questions but can't go at your own...More

The place where Brecht lived with Weigel ( they both had adjoining flats) is fascinating in terms of the contrast between both artists. I was inspired by this dwelling and the stick hanging behind the door which truly personifies their bond as being of a...More

The museum offers a tour of Brechts final dwelling. The house is in a very quiet part of the city, looking out over a French cemetery and the cemetery where Hegel is buried. Brecht liked that apparently. His work room is delightfully serene. The house...More

I have always admired the works of Brecht and I totally enjoyed to see his very beautiful work rooms that have an esthetic value that somehow surprised me. Maybe I thought he was too caught up in his work to take care of his surroundings,...More

Mitte
The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights
like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum
Island. The central location makes this one of the
city's most expensive places to live. It is here the
oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence
of some significant transformations, as well. The
gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets
between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given
