We visited this museum because we had been moved by her sculptures at the Vladslo cemetery in Belgium. We had taken some very evocative photos including her son's grave and the sculptures. It had been heavily raining adding to the persistent melancholic atmosphere of German...More

I was excited to find this museum in Chalottenberg. The collection is impressive, cataloging the important stages of Kollwitz's career, her development as an artist , her personal life and her passions. Superb!

Beautiful art set in a gorgeous old building in one of Berlin's most classy neighborhoods. Beautiful garden outside, so stop and enjoy the plants, maybe have a picnic?

Well worth a visit. Displays of Kollwitzs work through her life from etchings to wood cuts and then a display of her sculptures. Very moving works

Intelligently laid out to show artistic development and context. The small viewing spaces aren't overcrowded so the art has room to breathe. The bronzes on the top floor have huge impact, but nothing beats the simplicity of a monochrome plate etched with loss and guilt....More

I had not come across the work of Kathe Kollwitz before, an artist focusing largely on the poor and the horror of WW1. Well worth a visit

Never have I been so moved by a museum and the art it presents. The soul-baring artwork about death, war and sacrifice, alongside Kollwitz's heartbreaking life story moved me to tears. I highly recommend anyone visiting Berlin to come see this amazing museum.

Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through
the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which
lends its name to this well-heeled neighbourhood.
Here you'll find some of the oldest homes in the city:
upper-class apartment buildings with ornate facades
and marble-floored foyers line the cobblestone
streets. Stroll by sophisticated restaurants, through
little parks, or around Lake Lietzensee. Window shop
