We were given a guided tour in English by a lovely lady, who was very knowledgeable about the life of Brecht and Weigel. The house is small and in immaculate condition, left completely untouched since Brecht died there. Max. 8 people per tour but it wasn't busy. Would definitely recommend if you're interested in Brecht and his works. Brecht is... More

I can't recommend this enough. Whether you've got a knowledge of Brecht or not, it is both fascinating insight into the man and his wife as well as an extraordinary and amusing journey into the lives of an eccentric couple who loved one another in strange ways in post-war Germany. Our tour guide was excellent - excited about her subject... More

It's hard to write a general review, because our experience of this location is so much coloured by our theatre background, and the fact that it is inextricably linked to a whole day's sightseeing which included Brecht's grave and a second row seats to see Threepenny Opera just up the road at the theatre he worked in. Also, we were... More

The important german writer Bertolt Brecht who had to live in exile from 1933 to after 2WW lived at this site for the last years of his life. You can only visit the place by a guided tour. It turned out to be very interesting, and the excellent guide made you feel back in the 1950's. On the first floor... More

Check opening times before you go, I was caught out in one visit. If you are interested in Brecht then it is good to see where he once lived and worked. You are guided through so can ask questions but can't go at your own pace. Fairly cheap. Not much to see. Graveyard next door with his grave also Bonhoeffer's... More

The place where Brecht lived with Weigel ( they both had adjoining flats) is fascinating in terms of the contrast between both artists. I was inspired by this dwelling and the stick hanging behind the door which truly personifies their bond as being of a very different nature. I loved the attention to detail and the honour displayed by the... More

The museum offers a tour of Brechts final dwelling. The house is in a very quiet part of the city, looking out over a French cemetery and the cemetery where Hegel is buried. Brecht liked that apparently. His work room is delightfully serene. The house provides a few insights - his tricky relationships, his interest in Japanese and oriental ideas,... More

I have always admired the works of Brecht and I totally enjoyed to see his very beautiful work rooms that have an esthetic value that somehow surprised me. Maybe I thought he was too caught up in his work to take care of his surroundings, but the whole appartment is a tribute to simple beauty. Very interesting to see the... 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.
