An insight into the German design philosophy.

It's similar to the Design Museum in London or the design section of MOMA in New York but is less ambitious in scope. It resides in a distinctly East German factory building and... read more

Slightly larger than a small-sized room it is a place of whimsy. One can see, for example, the imprint that an "idea" leaves on a piece of paper (singes it like a burn). If you like quirky, odd, small (tiny) museums don't miss this one. You can then walk around Schonenberg which is filled with fabulous restaurants and shops.

It's similar to the Design Museum in London or the design section of MOMA in New York but is less ambitious in scope. It resides in a distinctly East German factory building and features 6000 or so exhibits in glass cases. The rules which have governed German design have been vehemently enforced against various contextual backgrounds of social and technological... More

The small museum is based on big thinking. The owner and artist, Roland Albrecht has written texts telling the story of the artefacts. Don't miss the stone that inspired Thomas Mann or the two Wheels from the typewriter of Walter Benjamin.

The Museum of Unheard of Things (Museum der unerhorten Dinge) is tiny. Don't expect to spend half a day here, or even an hour. But it's still worth the trip. The museum is basically a wide hallway. There are displays on the walls and along the centre of the hallway. Enough about its size. What is it a museum of?... More

Staying in Schoneberg

Neighbourhood Profile
In 1963, Schöneberg was the centre of the political west, inspiring John F. Kennedy to choose this area to famously announce, "Ich bin ein Berliner." Times may have changed, but modern-day Schöneberg still pays tribute to its historical legacies. Once the richest city outside of Berlin proper, the area's affluent past is still visible in ornate housing facades dating back to the Gründerzeit of the 19th century, while residents in fur coats walking their dogs or shopping in high-end KaDeWe continue the tradition with a modern flair. Schöneberg was also once the centre of the decadent and burlesque nightlife of the 1920s. It was here that Marlene Dietrich partied with Christopher Isherwood and the first gay bar in Germany was founded. Today, the gay community still revolves around Nollendorfplatz. The overground Ubahn station is even illuminated in rainbow colors, paying tribute to Schöneberg's progressive past.
