Delve into the surrealistic world of Salvador Dali, one of the most ingenious and eccentric artists of the 20th. century.

Dali – The Exhibition at Potsdamer Platz allows visitors for the first time with more than 450 exhibits from private collections worldwide, as a permanent exhibition the most extensive insight into Dali's virtuosic and experimental mastery in almost all techniques of art directly in the pulsating center of Berlin. "COME INTO MY BRAIN", Salvador Dali himself once invited his audience.

The museum shows in the permanent exhibition in particular the works, which are distinguished by the paranoiac-critical approach that honored Dali as a surrealist. Works in which he shot with muskets on massive lithostones and so invented the Bulletism or artworks where he let explode nail-filled bombs or drove a steamroller on a sewing machine.

To facilitate the visitors the way into this fascinating world, Dali_Scouts stand ready to guide visitors conversational in almost hourly held public guided tours through the exhibition.

I have been in Berlin many times, but this is the first time I have visited the Dali museum. It is a beautiful collection of his less known works. You will see print and drawings.

For fans of Dali there are some beautiful pieces to behold in this museum, however be warned the museum itself is rather disappointing. Firstly, the museum is expensive - on top of the inflated entry fee you have to pay for the guide book (not particularly good or relevant to the exhibition) and they even charge a fee to take...

There are over 400 Dali works, including Dante's Divine Comedy. His lithography press and movies are also included. One of the fils included Hitchcock's Spellbound with Gregory Peck and Ingrid Bergma. Dali was hired for the delusion sequences. Although it is reported much of Dali's influence was cut because of provocative references. Paying the extra US$7 was worth taking the... More

Visited this Dali Gallery for around 1-2 hours. Staff were friendly, the guides helpful and the experience was positive. We went on a Sunday afternoon and the number of visitors was light. Would not consider the end of tour cafe as worth a visit.

The Dali exhibition is very interesting and the way Dali are drawing is minster bugging. Clearly a genius artist, but also very controversial. The exhibition is though not very special and do not include any of his paintings. If the weather is rain, go in, but not worth 12,5 € pro person.

An extensive collection of less know art works. There are hundreds to see, give plenty of time. An insight to Dali which is unsettling. Not for children.

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.
