Berlin is wide and green, but sometimes you want more and feel the pressure to leave the S-Ring area and go into the wild. You also have visited all possible museums on the museuminsel and you are looking for more human size exhibition. Die Brücke (the bridge) Museum is your new destination.
Go to S-Hohenzollerndamm and change for a bus towards Grünewaldsee. Already the buildings are smaller and bigger houses are showing up, soon the trees from the Grunewald forest will appear on your right. You hop off the bus and still need to walk 500m in the forest, one of the last house has “Die Brücke” written on its wall. You need half a day for the whole excursion, if you’re coming from Berlin-Mitte.
The large villa hosts the collection of Die Brücke painting movement. As the collection is larger than the available space, there is a regular turn over. It is a very nice one floor white house, with a flat roof, made of connected rectangle rooms with a garden in the middle. It was constructed in a way that the paintings can get natural light with almost no windows on the walls but opening gaps on the ceiling.
