You have to go to museum island if you are in Berlin. This is where all the huge museums are. You could spend a day in each museum easily. There is art and history to explore galore! All museums are a decent price and you are guaranteed to learn something different in each one. Also, the grounds around the museums... More

I loved exloring around the canals, eating the wurst at the various beer gardens. Summer walking around the museum island is sleek and cool.

The Island houses 5 museums (Bode, Pergamon, Neues, Altes Museum and Altes Gallery) and the Berliner Dom Church. The one day Island pass involves a headlong rush to see everything. The Berlin Museum pass (valid for 3 days) is worthwhile and provides a good amount of time to view everything at a good pace. Prioritise what you may want to... More

an astounding exhibition of Egyptian, Roman and pre historic artefacts, including the bust of queen Nefertiti, a place you can spend the whole day in awe and wonder for 12 euro (4 floors accessed by large staircase or lift), also has a small café and shop.

We bought a travel ticket for the whole city that included free entrance to the five museums on Museum Island. I recommend this, you will save a lot of money. It was worth the visit just to see the incredible bust of Nefertiti.

There are many people around the island which is great. Visiting museums or lounging in the grass. It is also close to Humboldt University and Bebel Plaza. It... More

There are 5 museums here, and they do a combined ticket for a discounted price, saving quite a bit. Be aware that 3 of the 5 are closed on Mondays. The Pergamon will shortly be closing for a 5 year restoration project, so plan accordingly. Good cafe at the Bode museum. There is also pier where boat rides are offered... More

The place itself is probably the nicest in Berlin, and it is extremely convenient to have all the major museums of the city clustered together in one place.
