Lovely place to stroll around, with restaurants and cafes. Large green spaces to watch the world go by.

This was absolutely one of my favourite places in Berlin. The surroundings of the museums makes it almost a cosy corner. You can lay on the gras and just enjoy the atmosphere.

We loved the Pergamon Museum but didn't care for the Neue Museum adjoining. That is more dedicated to archaeology and wasn't our interest. They do have the bust of Nefertiti which is worth seeing, however. Wished we could have gone to the Museum of Art but didn't have time.

It's hard to beat an area with so many wonderful museums located so closely together. It's also a very enjoyable area just to stroll and enjoy. There is beautiful architecture in every direction, and the people watching is second to none. Whether you are there to view the museums or just spend some time, make sure you visit the Museum...

From the Pergamon's reconstructed Ishtar Gate to the Neues Museum's bust of Nefertiti, this is a stunning collection of archaeological finds and information. If you love museums and ancient history, buy a day pass to the island and see as many of the exhibits as you can.

Liked the buildings, dislike the road and building all over the area. You can't enjoy the touring because all the constructions and covered building - due to constructions

Well, nothing better than having many museums of art and history in the same spot. Fantastic. The buildings themselves are real jewels of the history of Architecture, from Schinkel to I.M.Pei.

We spent a couple of hours just roaming about the island - you can ride one of the golf carts or other options but the best part was just walking through the greens, lying down on the grass...watching people with their dogs, playing etc. It was a lovely afternoon.

Pick up the day pass to visit all five museums and the art gallery. The Berlin Cathedral is also right there and well worth a look. You can also enjoy the lovely green space in between the Cathedral and the "Old Museum" called "The Lustgarten."
