Berlin today is an eccentric mix of art and culture that is almost raw and gritty. I love the vibe of this city despite its exterior. Deep within the Hackescher Markt is a hidden enclave that exemplifies this energy, the Haus Schwarzenberg. This is the part where joining a walking tour really shines: you getting word of such hidden gem... More

Real gem of a location for anyone looking for a creative location in Berlin. Some great street art, a real buzz and a great gallery shop. A couple of museums in the courtyard which we didn't have time to visit but just a wander and especially a look in the stairwell leading to the gallery is well worthwhile. Definitely one... More

There really is very little to see at this museum. It's just a load of photos. To be honest you could probably get the same info from Wikipedia. This is also a museum you have to pay to enter. Compared with the excellent and very large displays at other museums, which cover the same subject matter, and are free to... More

A must see if you're interested in exploring Berlin's street art culture. This place is a true, living museum of street art.

Absolutely terrific place to walk through and see all the graffiti/street art. A house given over to artists where they can brilliantly show off their talents. It had some amazing work. As an artist myself who has just recently looked to street art as inspiration to my own work this was just a truly inspirational and spectacular place to discover.... More

From the descriptions I thought that this would be a good thing to see, more typical of the free-spirited Berlin, but I was disappointed. There was effectively nothing there. Neither of the shops was open, there were very few people around and the overall effect was pretty desultory. One caveat - I was there in the early afternoon, which may... More

I'm an artsy type of person from an eastern country and the total explosion of creativity that is to be found in this "Haus" is just .... so fantastic. The graffiti, the people, the small movie theater, the geigeresque bar.... it's perfect. I revisited this place 5 times while i was there and I am really surprised that there are... More

This is an awesomely preserved alternative art scene in the heart of a now very modern developed neighborhood. Worth a walk thru. Also the Monsterkabinet is in this building, go into it if it's open! Free to walk thru the courtyard but Monsterkabinet is a few euros to go in.

The host was very welcoming and helpful! Free audio guides and free entry... Located in what I think is the coolest, most pleasant neighborhood in Berlin (A short walk from Alexanderplatz). The museum has tons of history and stories inside. It is fun to wander into the small alley courtyards after seeing the museum as well! Worth finding and not... More

This hidden backyard stands as a reminder of the old Berlin. After the Berlin wall fell, this area became one of the most alternative spots of the city with most places abandoned and a lot of space for artists to be creative. Nowadays this area has become one of the more expensive parts of the city and all houses have... 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.
