MU­SEUM HOP

Where Berlin - - WINTER WONDERS -

It would be im­pos­si­ble to see all the great art there is to see in Berlin. If you feel you’ve ex­hausted the Na­tional Gal­leries, the Stasi and DDR Mu­se­ums, and ev­ery­thing in be­tween, the city also has many smaller col­lec­tions you won’t find any­where else. Font ob­ses­sives will love Mitte’s Buch­staben Mu­seum (Holz­mark­t­str. 66, www.buch­staben­mu­seum.de), ded­i­cated to ty­pog­ra­phy.

For paint­ings, draw­ings, and more, the

Käthe-Koll­witz-Mu­seum (Fasa­nen­str. 24, www.kaethe-koll­witz.de) of­fers in-depth in­sight into one of the most sig­nif­i­cant fe­male artists of the 20th cen­tury. You might rec­og­nize the name from the leafy square in Pren­zlauer Berg ded­i­cated to her. Housed in a for­mer up­per-class home in Char­lot­ten­burg, the mu­seum fea­tures the largest col­lec­tion of Koll­witz’s ex­pres­sive, tragic work. After ex­plor­ing this dy­namic fig­ure’s life, leave enough time to take the spe­cial pas­sage­way that con­nects the mu­seum to the fa­mous Win­ter­garten café in the Lit­er­aturhaus just next door. For those more in­ter­ested in the present and fu­ture than in the past, the Deutsche Bank Kun­sthalle (Un­ter den Linden 13-15, www.deutsche-bank-kun­sthalle.de) of­fers free tarot card read­ings along­side their con­tem­po­rary art exhibitions. Just show up to the Art and Re­li­gion Room any Thurs­day or Sun­day from 3–7pm.
