We purchased the 3-day Berlin Museum pass and visited this collection after viewing the Berggruen Museum (Picasso's and Klee's). Both are conveniently located across from the Charlottenburg Palace. I enjoyed the collection and the free audio guide. The collection is very intriguing. I confess that...More

Having seen other collections in other cities this didn’t have much of a wow factor. I think 2 Dali’s and most Goya pieces were small sketches. I went because I visited Charlottenburg Palace and it was free with my Berlin 3 day Museum Pass. If...More

A small nice musuem right across the street from Berggruen museum and the Charlottenberg palace. I have to admit that i am not a huge fan of Surrealism and i found Dubuffet's paintings to be odd but impressive. The best one there was Salvador Dali's...More

We stumbled upon thus relatively small museum by chance after seeing ads for their temporary exhibition "Surreale Sachlichkeit". This exhibition was a real treat with interesting pieces of art displayed in understandable context. Though thus exhibition will not last forever and the rest of the...More

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...More

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.

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
