Heinrich Zille created a series of fascinating illustrations, targeting everyday life and everyday people in turn-of-the-century Berlin. His works revealed so much about the grit of life and society during the Weimar age, and remain celebrated today. In his art, you see the seedy side of the city: crowded basements full of workers at the day's end, life on the streets, at the beach, how the lower classes entertained themselves.
There is humour and an undeniable truth in his chronicling of this period that make his works timeless. The museum shows Zille's collections of illustrations, photos, lithographs, and drawings. It exists thanks to Zille's great grandson, who has worked tirelessly to maintain the exhibitions. In the winter months, it's open 11am-6pm, and in the warmer months from 11am til 7pm. Entry is around €5 per person.
