Love of Letters – The Buchstaben Museum

There are literally hundreds of museums in Berlin and you can find information anywhere about Berlin’s most visited museums such as the Pergamon Museum, the Neues Museum and the German History museum. So given that they already get a lot of press, we’ve decided to focus on the little guys: the unusual museums, the private museums and the ones that offer a different kind of collection. Because Berlin does it differently, we will too.

First up we are going to the mecca of letters, the Buchstabenmuseum and not just because it’s REALLY interesting. It’s about to move locations so the coming weeks are your final chance to see it in its currently glory inside a former DDR supermarket. The museum will be closing its doors for relocation on November 2nd and the new site is yet to be determined so if you’re in Berlin, definitely make the time to get there and see it at the Holzmarktstrasse building.
