The museum is not well-known to visitors (I don't know why), but it definitely deserves more attention. It's a small museum, but I was deeply moved by the content inside - I loved learning more about one of the hidden heroes during the Nazi regime, and it made me think a lot. It's a free museum, and right across from... More

I did a self-guided tour of Otto Weidt's workshop. This one of my favorite sites in Berlin. It is a perfect place to learn more about a personalized story of the Nazi Germany, and the museum is housed in the actual former workshop. The informational panels are clear and interesting. I highly recommend visiting this site. They also had a... More

Alice Licht, I believe was her name, her story stays in my mind. She was one of the Jewish workers whom Otto Weidt saved. There is a picture of her as a child at the beach with her family, and her family had spelled her name "Alice" on the sand bank with shells. Moving to see how much she was... More

This is a very small space but it touches the soul especially when you read about the space, its inhabitants and its history. A gem of a place.

We spent around 45 minutes in this very small but very moving museum .....it's quite hard to find as its down an alley of a main road but well worth the effort ...it's free admission.....the museum which was the workshop explains the full and fascinating story of Otto and how he saved so many lives during world war 2

The museum is free, they have a very small donation box which can be missed. It is very small and you can pretty much cover everything in less than an hour but you will come out learning quite a bit. This was not on my list to see but recommended by a tour guide when passing through and I am... More

Staying in Mitte

Neighbourhood Profile
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 way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighbourhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
