When I visited Berlin I fell in love with the Bröhan-Museum. I made a point of going out of my way to Charlottenburg to go on a free day and it didn’t disappoint. The museum focuses on decorative objects and paintings from the Art Nouveau, Art Deco and the Berlin Secession Movements. If you don’t like stuff from this time in history, then maybe this place isn’t for you. But if you do, then please take note.
The museum is arranged into three levels of “room ensembles”, each containing examples of glassware, metal and ceramic displayed alongside paintings and furniture from a particular phase in late-19th/early-20th century art history. No photography is allowed inside the place (they actually make you check your things) but I did buy a postcard of Austrian sculptor Franz Hagenauer’s mirror design circa 1925-1930. I want it hanging in my room. More from Berlin later.
