    Based on a friend's recommendation, we booked a visit slot in advance, as walk-ins aren't allowed. Admission to the dome is free, and the audio guide provides detailed information. Despite thorough security checks, entry was well-organized and efficient. Definitely worth a visit!

    This is a truly stunning piece of architecture with its 12 arches topped by the chariot and horsemen - a great symbol of a nations history and power.

    This museum does an excellent job covering a very heart wrenching period of human evil. The exhibits may be shocking for teens (or younger), but that is the point so we never forget, not allow Holocaust deniers to spew their falsehoods unopposed.

    I particularly found the quotes of Hitler, Chamberlain, Eisenhower, etc. to be informative.

    I was fortunate to visit the museum before it is closed for long term refurbishment.

    Good collection of Middle East antiques.

    Museum Island is definitely a must visit in Berlin. I will visit them again.

    What a great way to use one of the 3 remaining parts of the wall. The art was interesting and made for a nice walk by the river. It can be difficult to take photos of it as it can be crowded. I love the different ideas presented and many are very colorful which is great when it's a bit gloomy.

    Falling in Love is the show at this venue that is playing until July 2024 - and it is absolutely crazy in a so-bad-it’s-good kind of way! The story is nonsense, the songs are silly, the outfits are gorgeous. There is some really unexpected talents to be seen, like trampolining and a unique balancing act. If you enjoy the camp nonsense that is often in Eurovision I think you will really enjoy it, if that kind of thing isn’t for you avoid it at all costs.

    As for the venue itself it is very grand, and I appreciate that it is relatively affordable. I booked a cheap seat on a weekday and paid €30 and can’t complain at all, I could see the whole stage and wasn’t at all uncomfortable. I’m sure the stall seats are great tho so just pay what you can afford. The seats are comfortable to me as a plus size person and I wouldn’t have any hesitation about coming back in the future.

    Also I have to commend the staff - I had a problem with my ticket and they gave some helpful advice (in English) over the phone.

    Beautiful area with the beautiful museum buildings. The pergamon museum is closed for several years which is disappointing. We did go to the Neues Museum- I enjoyed the Egyptian displays (including the Nefertiti bust!) but the rest of the museum was an extensive display of moderately interesting artifacts. I think I'd expected more art/statues vs bones and small artifacts. I very much enjoyed walk about the buidlings and watching the river- the Cathedral added beauty to the landscape but we chose not to pay to enter.

    Amazing building, the climbing to the top is a must, unbelievable views of Berlin.
    The inside has some things that are great, like the organ , the mausoleum and others.
