  • Very good collection here in a very modern building set in the arts district of West Berlin, also near the embassies.  more »
  • It's closed for months (or years) for reconstruction. Unfortunately it's not mentioned here so I was disappointed when I got there. A visit to the Kulturforum nearby made that up though.  more »

  • Here you can find modern contemporary arts and installations.
  • This architectural masterpiece by Mies Van der Rohe (his last building) is currently undergoing a complete overhaul of which Sir David Chipperfield is in charge. Slated to reopen in 2020, the New National Gallery houses primarily 20th century and contemporary art. It'll soon receive an extension by Swiss architects Herzog&DeMeuron which will close the gap between Scharoun's Chamber Music Hall and Van der Rohe's building.
