The Kulturforum (Cultural Forum) in Berlin Tiergarten is considered as counterpart to the Museumsinsel in Berlin Mitte and is located centrally at Potsdamer Platz. Our fjord hotel berlin is just around the corner! It arose gradually around the open space around the St. Matthäus-Kirche (Church of Parish St. Matthäus). In the meantime, the Kulturforum exists of museums, concert halls, libraries and institutes, thus forming another cultural highlight of the city.
The Gemäldegalerie (Art Gallery) is an insider´s tip. Because the museum is a little bit hidden, it is not that overcrowded and offers enough space around the painting so you can regard it, without being pushed along with the masses.
The Neue Nationalgalerie (New National Gallery) typically exhibits art and culture from the 20th century. However, since January 2015, the building is completely refurbished and is thus closed. However, the Kunstgewerbemuseum (Museum of Decorative Arts) has reopened after extensive renovation and refurbishment.
For lovers of modern Art, at the Kulturforum a new museum is planned. The so called “Museum der Moderne” (Museum of Modern Art) will be probably reopened in 2020 and complement the Neue Nationalgalerie.
In addition to museums, at the Kulturforum there are architecturally stunning concert halls, the Berlin Philharmonie and the Kammermusiksaal (Chamber Music Hall). You are cordially invited to attend a concert of the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra; they rank among the best orchestras in the world not without reason.
On the other side of the road, the Neue Staatsbibliothek (New State Library) and the Ibero-American Institute are located. This building is designed in accordance with the Berlin Philharmonie, thereby forming a unit, despite it stands on the opposite side of the street.
Summer Cinema at Kulturforum
In summer, the Kulturforum holds ready another wonderful attraction for you. On the open space between the museums, in the summer a huge canvas is built with about 1.000 comfortable deck chairs in front of it. On mild summer nights, here the films of the past few months are shown. The combination of the Potsdamer Platz as a backdrop, the Kulturforum as the host of this event and a wonderful film could not make a summer evening better!
Our fjord hotel berlin is just a short walk away from the Kulturforum Berlin. Because of that, you can simply stroll to the Kulturforum and enjoy the day!
