    Worth visiting! Booked free of charge visit to terrace. Even though it was a bit crowded at other tourist attractions, amount of people did not distract.

    What an emotional experience. I have dreamed about visiting this place that I teared up when I was walking along the Memorial.

    This is a must visit. Even though restoration was underway the Persian display was magnificent. The upstairs Muslim collection was fascinating. It was crowded but not so much as to dampen the enjoyment.

    We only had time to visit two museums plus the Berlin Cathedral, but they were all very informative. The Bode Museum could have used more signage/information in English.

    Huge theatre with very modern lighting and effects. Great sound and superb acrobatics. Very popular, we went on a Sunday evening and it seemed full. You can eat there but that fact was not well advertised. Large rooms behind the theatre, and if you went looking for a toilet downstairs there were loads, although the immediate toilets at height were queued for most of interval. Another feature that was not made clear. We arrived slightly late by taxi, but had a great seat at a reasonable price.

    Special Olympics closing ceremony on when we visited so the whole area was sealed off to traffic. Great view from the gate down the mall to the victory column. Just like you see in the films.
    Didn't realise the Adlon Hotel was so close. We were going to stop for a drink but it was very busy.

    It is a surreal experience. Strange. It feels like walking in between and under graves. The stories are encouraging and show the strong spirits of those who were subjected to such grave life situations as the Holocaust.

    This is a quirky and unique place to visit, and should be high on your list of “must-sees” if you are in Berlin. After the wall was breached most of it was pulled down, but in this area of Berlin 1.3km was left standing, and it wasn’t long before numerous artists were turning their hand to creating what has become the longest open-air gallery in the world. Take a gentle stroll along the full length of the “gallery”, and be sure to find the most iconic images – the Trabant bursting through a fractured Berlin Wall, and the “Fraternal Kiss”, which depicts Leonid Brezhnev and Erich Honecker locked in the passionate embrace referenced in the title.
    PS Don't be put off by the location - it's well worth the effort.

    Discount ticket on the door using welcome card. Calm space most characters and displays easily understood although little English written in the cathedral, we did have an English guide sheet. Seemed smaller inside than one might have expected. On banks of the Spree with green spaces behind. Restoration work proceeding to rear. Lots of tombs of former monarchs/leaders of Germany, Very elaborate work, but limited appeal.

    It has an amazing collection of Egyptian artifacts. We tried in the morning but the lines were too long. We cam back in the late afternoon and there was no crowd. The only drawback is the confusing layout. We tried to find the elevator but gave up and used the stairs.

    There‘s a really wide range of exhibits here - if you viewed everything in detail this would take you a day at least. I spent over five hours here and I skipped a number of exhibits and skimmed others.

    In the main building I recommend the Zuse computers exhibit, telecommunications, shipping, and sugar.

    There is also a harder-to-find set of exhibits away from the main building on Ladestraße. This had exhibits about computing and networks, road transport, and temporary exhibits on German public transport (German-only). Loved this building.

    Some minor issues: a lot of the interactive parts of exhibitions were shut or disabled (I presume covid), some exhibitions are German-language-only, and some exhibitions were closed entirely.

    Lovely wooded parkland. Loads of space. Great cafe with tonnes of tables in full sun and shade. We jumped on e-scooters, which are literally on virtually every corner around the centre of Berlin and spent a couple of hours riding around. Watch out for the naked men in one area sunbathing.

    The Charlottenburg Palace is, in my opinion, one of the top main attractions in Berlin. However, the visitation is not highly frequented so it is very nice and not stressful to visit this place. You can visit it independently from the weather or the age. Everybody can see something new and have fun. There is also a restaurant and a location where you can have a big party like a wedding or a prom. This place is very popular for such events.
    It is easy to reach by public transport, with the train and there is a bus station in front of the palace, there is also a large parking lot.
    It was build in the 17th century and the facade was completely repainted about two or three years ago. Inside the palace is a museum with changing exhibitions.
    Every year, there is a large Christmas market in front of the palace and the palace is beautifully illuminated. Behind the palace is a big garden which is absolutely lovely. There are a small pond and a lot of trails where you can walk around. You also can ride a bicycle through the garden or have a small picnic with some friends or do sports in a group. Often there are groups of people doing yoga. There are several sheep in the meadow so the lawn does not have to be mowed. This is very environmentally friendly and also a small attraction

    Had a great trip, as a seasoned zoo visitor really enjoyed the lion habit and the panda garden. Could spend all day ere, plenty of places to get food and drink or have a picnic.
