Karl Friedrich Schinkel’s Altes Museum, completed in 1830, is one of the most important buildings of the Neoclassical era. The monumental arrangement of eighteen Ionic fluted columns, the expansive atrium and sweeping staircase that invites visitors...more

Altes Museum is in the Museum Island and is characterized as a UNESCO World Heritage site. Most of the exhibits are are antiquities which was interesting.
The museum building was built in 1800s in the neoclassical style to house the Prussian royal family's art collection....More
Great to visit these museums and galleries when there is so much space. Easy to look at exhibits in such spleandour. The building itself is remarkable and worth a visit alone. The contents didnt really do it for me but then thats art. Unllike UK...More
I loved this museum! It’s so well spaced out and follows easily from room to room. There is a lot to see, especially for an ancient world lover! I was here for 2.5 hours, didn’t get an audio guide but I feel the info panels...More
So from the outside this is a magnificent and imposing building and is magnificent on the inside too, but the artifacts and displays are not the greatest on the island.
However, that said, if you have the museum pass for the island then it is...More
I may have blundered a bit doing this so close to the marvellous Bodemuseum, as their timelines and content are quite similar, but Bodemuseum is much better.
The main problem for me was that lot of the larger pieces appeared to be more weathered slash...More
This museum is strictly for the Antiquities buffs. It has an astounding collection of antiquities from the Greeks, Etruscans and Romans’. All are well displayed and labeled. If you like this sort of thing, and I do, this is a must see.
The building itself is stunning, it's in a great location with lots of people gathering on the lawn in front to chill out, there's music performers to entertain too. Inside you will find some of the best preserved artifacts I've ever seen in europe. the...More
Should I book any museum or attraction tickets in advance? (7 Replies)
I'll be going to Berlin in mid December and I was wondering whether it was necessary to book any tickets to some stuff in advance because of very long queues? I want to go to the check point charlie museum, the Altes museum and the Jewish museum. Should we get tickets in advance? Is there anything anyone would really recommend that I should be getting tickets for now? We have already booked a tour of German parliament. Thanks

You should be ok. The only museum that really needs booking is Pergamon and even that 'should' be all right in mid-December.

And what is the best...More

Thank you very much for your reply. If we decide not to take a walking tour what would be the best way to organize these sites?

Itinerary (7 Replies)
Hi all We are off to Berlin for 4 nights next weekend, and I was hoping that someone here might be willing to cast an eye over our vague itinerary and let me have any thoughts? I feel pretty disorganised about this trip, and some of the plan is still a bit wooly… I also know we won’t fit everything in, but like to have an idea of what’s in the area / vague route in mind and then we’ll play it by ear as we go as to what to drop during the day if needed. My 2 over-arching questions,...More

Looks good to me. Definitely go to the Topography of Terror. Also consider skipping the Checkpoint Charlie Museum.
