I had a museumpass so I went to visit it. It was a very good one! I was surprised as I had no expectations. I really liked the collection and temporary expo there. The museum is small but interesting. I do recommend visiting it if you like also the opposite museum Bergguen. With museumpass, you pay nothing.

Thank Bob R

The Scharf-Gerstenberg collection has a strong focus on surrealist and outsider art. Many of the pieces exhibited are works on paper, works by second tier artists or relatively weak pieces by well known artists - I would assume that a single Picasso or Giacometti from the Bergruen collection across the street is worth more then the entire collection exhibited here....

Nice collection of surrealistic art and other paintings from the period. Works of Max Ernst are especially well presented. I recommend visiting this collection and the Breggruen museum across the road with a combined ticket.

I suffer from PTSD and have been debilitated by depression and panic attacks for about a decade now. It's difficult for me to leave my apartment, but on days when I do muster the will, I go to art galleries and theatres - if churches are where believers go to connect with God, art galleries, for myself and many many...

Museum grouped surrealist art by themes along with great explanations. I now have better understanding about surrealism.

My wife and I visited the Collection Scharf-Gerstenberg on a Saturday in May. Who cares that it was a Saturday? Well, the guidebook said that this museum opens at 10:00 am, period. But, when we went on a Saturday morning, turns out that it actually opens at 11:00 am on Saturdays. This little gem of a museum -- showcasing surreal... More

Wonderful surrealist collection with a great deal of Klee and Ernst painting/drawings and Magritte and Redon (wonderful Redon pieces actually!) and many more. The museum itself is a gem: a Royal stable being completely modernised and now a great exposition space. The museum is just in front at the Berggruen Museum that house a great collection of modern art (Picasso... More

Having bought tickets to see this exhibition I was about to enter the exhibition with my friend when I was stopped by a nazty little jobsworth who insisted I check my handbag ( the only bag I was carrying) into their unsupervised locker room. As it contained my passport, cards, money etc.etc. I protested but we were not allowed to... More

This is one of two museums almost next to each other, which can be visited on the same day with one ticket. Go to the other, the Berggruen, first, then cross the road to this one and sample the cafe before tackling the works. The collection focuses on the surreal, the fantastic, and linked works, divided up into themes rather... More

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighbourhood Profile
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 down Kurfürstendamm, the most renowned high-end shopping street in Berlin, where you can find all the big designer names. In the evening, visit one of the old theatres close by Zoo Station which were nightlife hot spots in the 1920s, or dine in one of the many international restaurants around Savignyplatz before heading to other parts of town for a night out.
