Brecht-Weigel-Gedenkstätte (Brecht-Weigel Memorial Site) Review

You can visit the former working and living quarters of playwright Bertolt Brecht and his wife, actress Helene Weigel, and scholars can browse through the Brecht library (by appointment only). The downstairs restaurant serves Viennese cuisine using Weigel's recipes. Brecht, Weigel, and more than 100 other celebrated Germans are interred in the Dorotheenstädtischer Friedhof (Dorotheenstadt Cemetery) next door. The house can only be visited on tours, which take place every half-hour, in German. Call ahead to schedule an English tour.
