Pergamon Museum has everything - from Sumatran to Egyptian to Roman. The gates of Ishtar and the surrounding artifacts and tablets with the rich explanation are mesmerizing. The recreation of the Roman columns is splendid, and captivate the imagination of everyone who is interested in this beautiful architectural feat. The Neues Museum is brilliant in its historical array as well.The... More

A must visit for all visitors to Berlin. There are also offers on tickets, so depending on how many museums you want to visit you can ask at the information points to get the best deal. I highly recommend Bode museum (even looking only at the interior of the building worths the visit) and Altes Museum.

We didn't hit all the museums, after 4 we were worn out and needed tea-time. The all-inclusive for 18EU is a steal. We went right at opening to the Pergamon and so it wasn't crowded--highly recommend this tactic. The Nationale Galerie is a bit disappointing compared to such as the Louvre or NYC Met, but the antiquities collections at the... More

If you're visiting Berlin this is simply a must-see. I would recommend doing it with a walking tour, like Insider Tours, so that you can get the full richness of the history that this island has to share with us.

For history lovers and who wonder some museums this place is some kind of gold. Lots of paintings and sculptures explains history in their own language... And also you can stand on the bridge and just look the beauty of the river, this will fill your soul with peace and goodness.

A trip along the canal is always great you get to see a city from another angle, but the museum island has the most amazing collections of art and museums. You need more than a day here, just to take in everything.

Museum Island is just amazing. There is just too much to see and it really needs several repeat visits. But even with just a day you can get into two or three world-class museums -there's a one day pass covering all the museums which is very good value at 18 euros. We did the Pergammon ( blows your mind), the... More

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.
