It is a rare privilege to be able to absorb so many of the works of this great artist, this woman of social conscience, daughter and granddaughter of people of social concience, portrayer and protestor of the plight of the poor. The expressions on the faces of starving children reaching out their bowls to be filled in a soup kitchen;... More

Very interesting museum. Impressive drawings. Small, quiet and intimate. Take a coffee afterwards in the "Litteraturhaus" next door.

A little intensive museum, which tell the story and show the universe of Käthe Kollwitz, her fantastic drawings showing the social life in the start of the last century - and the political, historic and social conditions. The outstanding drawings is a strong political statement against war, poorness, and political stupidity. And about to lose persons you love ... And... More

Käthe Kollwitz is too unknown in most of the West. An important polemical artist mostly active in the Inter War years and later banned by the Nazis, Kollwitz was a leader in the movement to make economic and social suffering a legitimate subject of modern art. Kollwitz died at the end of WWII. This museum is a small sample of... More

I have heard of Kathe Kollwitz before my visit to the museum, but my knowledge was limited and fragmented. The small size of the museum (some 80 works) is one of it's greatest advantages, as it makes it possible to pay attention to every single piece as well as to read the information boards at every room, which illuminate various...

This museum is a must! Even if it is small, it is full of interesting works by Käthe Kollwitz. Everything is nicely presented in German and English and it helps to get an idea of what this incredible woman has done! Very recommendable the statues in the attic.

My mother loved this museum. She worked using a lot of the same mediums as Käthe Kollwitz, so it was fascinating to see such a large number of her works in one place. The museum is four or so floors of works. Many of them deal with dark and heavy themes in Germany's history. Themes of motherhood, suffering in Germany,... More

If you are a fan of and familiar with the namesake artist Kathe Kollwitz, you'll love it. We were not previously familiar with her, but stopped in while in the neighborhood. While her subject matter and cause was admirable, we just didn't connect with her art.

Her etchings and sculptures capture the human consequences of war. Such sadness. If you don't know of Kaethe Kollwitz, this is the place to find out about her.

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighbourhood Profile
Charlottenburg
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.
