I have had the opportunity to visit this museum on 3 separate occasions, and I still haven't seen everything they have to offer. Not only is the architecture beautiful, but it is extremely well thought out with how it relates to the content within the museum. Spend a while exploring the bottom level before you work your way to the... More

This was a museum I had wanted to visit on my last visit to Berlin but we were too late at that time. It was much different to what I expected. A history of Judaism in Europe that has many artefacts worth looking at. I learnt a large amount and had little idea of how Judaism had developed and spread.... More

Very nice structured museum, interesting architecture, leisure spaces with cafes, lots of exhibits and interactive learning areas. We stayed there about 3-4 hours and could've stayed more, that's how many things are there to see. Very large museum shop as well.

First of all, it takes a long time to see everything this place has to offer. But honestly, it is totally worth it. It introduces a very informative collection of jewish history. The creative modern architecture is just making the place even better, would visit the museum again.

I don't think I realised how detailed this museum would be - and I wasn't able to take in all the history on offer. However, the new building is incredible. The holocaust tower was a sensory deprivation experience. It really moves you and evokes emotion. The garden was also extremely successful in making you understand how the Jewish people must...

I really wanted to visit the museum but came away very disappointed. I fully appreciate the architectural quality of this unique building but layout of the ground floor is very confusing. The exhibitions in the main part of the building are a little dull. The museum is included in the 3 day museum pass (great value) but was probably the... More

This is a very unusual museum and very modern design, which feels quite maze like. But it's designed that way to make you feel confused like how the Jews felt. The display areas though are filled with interesting artifacts, documents, photos, etc which are very emotional. Lovely covered area outside where we had a coffee and sandwich. We got discount...

The Jewish Museum, housed in 2 buildings (the magnificent baroque Kollegienhaus, originally the Prussian Court of Justice & Daniel Libeskind's architectural wonder shaped in a twisted zig-zag design) houses 2000 years of German Jewish history. For the first time in postwar Germany, this museum explicitly presents and integrates the erasure of Jewish life in Germany's history and the repercussions of... More

This was the only museum we visited on our trip and it was well worth it. I wish we had allowed longer - you cannot hurry, it just seems wrong. A must visit. And - although it seems trite to say it, the cafe is nice to sit and reflect in before or afterwards.

Staying in Kreuzberg

Neighbourhood Profile
Kreuzberg
Berlin's revolutionary heart and immigrant roots can both be found in Kreuzberg, but this central neighbourhood is beginning a new chapter. In the 1950s and '60s, Turkish guest workers settled around Kottbusser Tor, while in the 1980s and '90s, rambunctious squatters and artists gathered to live a carefree life here. An old hospital even became a hotspot of riots between squatters and police. Today you can still find the best kebabs in town and many underground clubs, but a lot has changed as well. The hospital has been transformed into an art center, and increasingly you will find new urban cafés, restaurants and designer shops. Rising housing prices and gentrification threaten the spirit of this area along the Spree River, but the neighbourhood’s legacy is upheld by a very engaged community fighting to preserve its rebellious identity.
