As we are shortly touring Bauhaus sites we thought we should try this museum, at least as a scene-setter. Planned to spend half an hour or so, since the reviews suggested there was not much to see. In the event we passed an enjoyable couple...More

The permanent collection is small and focuses on the people and the school more than on the designs they produced. The temporary exhibitions are more than half of the museum, so if you're interested in that specific segment, it's maybe worth making the trip.

Small, tasteful exhibition unpacking the multi-displinary approach of combining arts, crafts and architecture to design the building of the future with big ideas about changing society. Brillian Jasper Morrison exhibition called 'thingness' where the designer Morrison comes across as a sparky, humble and openhearted soul.

Nice collection of Bauhaus artists and designers from their inception to the late 30s. The multi-media (furniture, photography, design, architecture, fabric etc.) is well balanced.

If you are interested in design this could be a place to visit, but don't expect too much as it is a very small place and the museum's collection is pretty standard, so it will have to be the temporary exhibit that makes you travel...More

Disappointed is the word to describe how I felt once I entered the building. Only two exhibition rooms with a few objects. If you like design and architecture don't waste your time going there.

Not recommended for children. The audio tour is thorough but for a more excited and descriptive explanation of the Bauhaus movement, take a daytrip out to the Bauhaus university itself! Cute cafe with outdoor seating was the highlight of our visit, as well as the...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
