When I saw the Babylon remains in Berlin Museum Island, I felt WOW! Highly recommand it. You will find quite a lot of real remainings that listed or showed in your school history books. Really amazing when you see those ancient remainings with your eyes.

Don't miss the Pergamon and the Neues museums. Pergamon is smaller than we expected but with interesting items. Neues has the Nefertiti statue / head. If all you want to do is visit one of the museums in the island and spend an couple of hours there – and there is nothing wrong with that (the Pergamon would be top... More

Very expensive for these museums comparatively but if you're a fan of art this will be up your street!

You have to have a lot of time and a good pair of walking shoes to see even a small part of this museum. I only had time to see Neferitite but she was worth it. This museum area is a "must" for any traveler to Berlin.

The grouping of these buildings on the island is amazing, as is the engineering to keep them from flooding. Construction is still occurring-when completed this will be a showpiece for the world.

In my opinion, every educated person should have the need to familiarize themselves with amazing exhibits that were collected on this unique island in several museums. Depth and dimension of civilization skills are proven documented here.

So much to see and so little time.. That was the feeling we had on the museum island. Must say that a day is not enough for the history and art lovers. Take the Museum pass which is worth as it saves the valuable time and of course money. Sitting in one of the cafes across the island and appreciating... More

Visited Pergamon, Neues and Bode in two days. There are two others as well which we did not have time to visit. Get the museum pass which allows visits to many museums in Berlin at a great discount over individual prices. Enjoyed Neues the most even though all three were enjoyable. Pergamon has the longest line, but your hotel concierge... More

Bode Museum might be the least-visited museum on the island but has a fantastic collection of mediaeval sculptures. Recommended for a quiet and uncrowded visit with plenty of time and space to get a close look at the exhibits. Good cafe too.

Staying in Mitte

Neighborhood Profile
Mitte
The center of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighborhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
