The German Technology Museum (Deutsches Technikmuseum) is a real highlight in Berlin. Even if you are normally not that interested in this field, you should still visit this wonderful museum. It offers insight into almost all aspects of technology. With its 26,000 sqm of exhibition space, this museum is one of the largest in Europe. The developments in transport, communication and energy technology can be admired in 14 different sections. Every section is devoted to one special aspect of technology. When the weather permits it, you can also visit the museum park with windmills and an old brewery. The Science Centers Spectrum offers the opportunity to get a hands-on experience. Over 150 experiments illustrate the phenomena of acoustics, optics, electricity, radioactivity and much more. Here you have the chance to learn and explore.
It is nearly impossible to see everything this museum has to offer in just one day. It is best to limit your stay to only a couple of sections that most interest you or come back another time for more. There is something interesting to explore for everyone. Highly recommendable are the exhibitions of real historic trains in the old and beautiful engine shed. Wonderful are also the historic planes that are hanging from the ceiling to be admired from below, as well as the many boats that are on display, including an old wreck of a barge.
There is just so much to explore. The small café in the entrance hall of the museum is a good place to take a break and relax.
