This place is big, really big. The new building covers 5 floors of boats and planes, there are two full train sheds, and three more floors of textiles, cameras and chemicals. If you get through all that, there a separate building with 3 floors of science and a transport section. Kept the kids (4 and 6) entertained all day. It... More

We visited with two teenagers in tow, both of which had visited a few times before, as had we. This time (January 2017) we were particularly interested in the new additions to the complex and the trains and interactives. The museum is huge, and if you want to see everything in detail, you need to bring stamina and a snack... More

Recommended to spend 2-3 hours here. I found it I could easily spend at least double the recommended time. You can see, among other things, the actual locomotives how they developed over the centuries. Hate to admit, but I have actually traveled in some of the train wagons exhibited. Aircrafts and ships sections brought me back to the times I... More

Great place to take kids, make sure you can speak German and read it too. Enjoyed seeing all the equipment that was there. Great job displaying the cars and trains. There is a little bit of everything.

Watch out with this museum as you will see time fly by. The museum has several floors & themes, I found it very hard to do everything (in fact I visited it twice). Anyway, there are a lot of things to look & feel, so ideal for kids with an interest in technique.

My son and I spent the good part of a day here, and still didn't get to see everything . Good value for money and good for a family day out.

An amazing museum well worth seeing and a reasonable entry fee. We never gave ourselves enough time to justify our visit and because we had visited the Jewish museum earlier that day did not have enough time. I would say you need at least 4 hrs mininum to see it and longer if required.The only reason I did not give... More

Staying in Kreuzberg

Neighbourhood Profile
Kreuzberg
Berlin's revolutionary heart and immigrant roots can both be found in Kreuzberg, but this central neighbourhood is beginning a new chapter. In the 1950s and '60s, Turkish guest workers settled around Kottbusser Tor, while in the 1980s and '90s, rambunctious squatters and artists gathered to live a carefree life here. An old hospital even became a hotspot of riots between squatters and police. Today you can still find the best kebabs in town and many underground clubs, but a lot has changed as well. The hospital has been transformed into an art center, and increasingly you will find new urban cafés, restaurants and designer shops. Rising housing prices and gentrification threaten the spirit of this area along the Spree River, but the neighbourhood’s legacy is upheld by a very engaged community fighting to preserve its rebellious identity.
