Bountiful Picassos, Klees

This museum had quite a collection of Picassos and Klees, as well as some Cezannes and Matisses. For €10 it is worth it if you like this period.

This museum is virtually devoted to works by Picasso and Klee. As a collection assembled by an individual, for my taste it included too many second-rate drawings by Picasso, who was too prolific. But there are one or two excellent paintings, and some very good Klee paintings.

We went to see the Charlottenburg Schloss. Fortunately for us, it was under construction otherwise we would not have discovered this absolutely beautiful museum and gallery. It contains a fairly comprehensive collection of Paul Klee's work. The museum itself was intimate yet architecturally impressive setting for the art. I also liked the many Picasso paintings, which were some of lesser... More

Came with the family but ended up visiting on my own as it was just too 'boring' for them. I loved it! The museum building itself is beautiful inside and the collection is well presented. I took the audio guide (in English or German only) which gave background information on at least 15 works of art and explained their significance... More

Directly across from Schloss Charlenburg, this museum of art primarily by Picasso, Matisse, Cézanne, and Klee is housed in a lovely building and is easy to visit in an hour or so. Do not miss the two outstanding sculpts in the courtyard.

I certainly enjoyed my visit, but the Picasso collection in Malaga or Barcelona are far more impressive. The nice thing was it had examples from each of his periods. Lots of studies and sketches. The circular staircase inside is amazing. Not really impressed with the Matisse or Cezanne collection. Limited English narrative.

The main part of the collections are the works from Picasso, including paintings and sculptures. The gate of the museum was closed, but the museum was open. All the works are well displayed. Space, light and settings are very good.

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighbourhood Profile
Charlottenburg
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 down Kurfürstendamm, the most renowned high-end shopping street in Berlin, where you can find all the big designer names. In the evening, visit one of the old theatres close by Zoo Station which were nightlife hot spots in the 1920s, or dine in one of the many international restaurants around Savignyplatz before heading to other parts of town for a night out.
