Such a great place to just walk around, surrounded by the Spree and its canals, the garden in front of the National Museum built to the design of Lenne, see the damage done to the columns of the Altes National Gallery, walk past the great Chipperfield extension to the Neues Museum

Museum island is a great activity for a rainy day in Berlin as all the different museums are close to each other. There is plenty to see, my favourites are the Pergamon and Alte Nationalgalerie.

We were in Berlin October 29 to November 5, 2016. The list of closed museums were the Neue National Gallerie, the Gemalde Gallerie (partially), and Die Brucke Museum. I realize that closures are necessary to allow for maintenance, but there were still enough tourists in Berlin at this time that the museum closures should have been scheduled for January, which...

The Bode, Pergamon, Altes Museum, Neues Museum and National Gallery are there. I saw all but the Altes. There's a lot to see so if you're going to be there a few days, you should consider getting the 3 day pass.

I just loved this region! There are museums, water, fountains, cool atmosphere and cool people. I didn't get to visit all the museums over there, but even though it's a nice place to hang around.

On a grey rainy day you might want to stay warm in one the many pubs and typical restaurants of Berlin or spend the afternoon going around the 5 museums of the Inselmuseum, close to Berlin Dome. You can easily purchase a ticket for all the 5 museums for €18 and visit every floor of the 5 museums of the... More

I suggest to have one day for this. Pay for island ticket (18€) in which you have all museum on island which will definitely pay of if you wanna visit two and more museums.

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.
