Standing in the center of Berlin, Gropius Bau was designed by Heino Schmeiden and Martin Gropius, the great uncle of Walter Gropius, founder of the Bauhaus movement. Built between 1877 and 1881 in a classically inspired neo-Renaissance style, the building stands alongside a piece of the Berlin Wall. It now houses contemporary art collections and serves as a major international exhibition and event venue. More than 20 large-scale art, photography, and anthropological exhibits stop here every year--past exhibits have focused on Native American tribes, Frida Kahlo, and Anish Kapoor. The high-ceilinged cafe is a good place to stop for refreshments. In warm weather, you can eat outside in the garden. Planning Berlin trip won't be overwhelming when you use Inspirock's itinerary maker.

  • as compared to my other museum experience in Berlin, this was by far my most favourite. the featured artists and works are very international and a good variety that is very inclusive. wished there were more exhibitions though. the supervisors were very helpful and kind. also a provided locker (free) and a cloak room. will come back again!
  • Lovely place and must required a visit while you are in Berlin. Surroundings have a lot to offer and a simple walk in sunny weather will cheer your mood.
