#70 of 191 in Museums in Berlin
The Kulturforum is a collection of cultural buildings in Berlin, Germany. It was built up in the 1950s and 1960s at the edge of West Berlin, after most of the once unified city's cultural assets had been lost behind the Berlin Wall. The Kulturforum is characterized by its innovative modernist architecture; several buildings are distinguished by the organic designs of Hans Scharoun, and the Neue Nationalgalerie was designed by Mies van der Rohe. Today, the Kulturforum lies immediately to the west of the redeveloped commercial node of Potsdamer Platz.
Among the cultural institutions housed in and around the Kulturforum are: Neue NationalgalerieGemäldegalerieMuseum of Decorative ArtsMusical Instrument MuseumKupferstichkabinett (Print room) Art LibraryBerliner PhilharmonieChamber Music HallBerlin State LibraryIbero-American InstituteWissenschaftszentrum St. Matthäus-Kirche

  • Very nice place to spend time at if you're interested in art. Somehow it's not that popular and there aren't food options in the immediate area. However, Potsdamer Platz is very close.
  • Impressive building, far edged.
