For musicians and those folks interested in learning about, looking at and hearing old instruments, this museum should get five circles. For everyone else, maybe just three circles. Since I'm a musician I loved seeing all the antique instruments and hearing the samples of them...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

I had the audio guide, which gives a commentary on a number (I would estimate about 10-20%) of the instruments, and allows you to hear a piece of music performed on them. If you listen to all and see all the instruments on... More
