Natural History Museums

How did life on Earth begin? How did the dinosaurs live 150 million years ago? And how come there is wild boar in the middle of the city? These and many more questions on the creation of our planet, the development of species, and flora and fauna in and around Berlin can be answered at the Natural History Museum (which, by the way, features the world-wide largest complete dinosaur skeleton on display!), the Botanical Museum (right next door to the Botanical Gardens), or at the Natural History Collections.

Five minutes’ walking distance from Alexanderplatz. Huge hand-painted film posters hang on the sandstone façade of the postmodern building from the 60’s. Though its architecture is striking from the outside, the building’s most impressive features are found inside. With its magnificent chandeliers, retro eastern European style, red armchairs and huge glass front, the cinema’s foyer is a highlight in itself. Be it premieres or gay parties, this cinema hosts all sorts of events where glamorous VIPs mix with students, film lovers and party people.
