Today I’d like to recommend one of the most popular and important places to visit while in Berlin – Museumsinsel – the Museums Island. DON’T MISS OUT!
The Museum Island is located in Berlin Mitte (center) right along the Spree river and it is very easy to get to.
It was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO because of the amount of big museums on the island and their architectural importance of the island’s structure.
The Mueumsinsel is only walking distance away from Alexanderplatz, Hackscher Markt, the Beliner Dom, DDR Museum, cafe’s and restaurants.
Which museums can you find in the museumsinsel?
- The Altes Museum (Old Museum) that was built in 1830!
- The Neues Museum (New Museum) it was built in 1859, and got destroyed in World War II.
- The Alte Nationalgalerie (Old National Gallery).
- The Pergamon Museum
- The Humboldt Forum
You can either buy single ticket to each of the museums around 6-7E I think… Or you can buy one ticket for all Museumsinsel that costs 18E.
Now, if you tend to visit more than one museum I would suggest you to go early and buy the 18 Euro ticket that includes all museums. In my opinion and from my personal experience, it’s better this way. But remember these are big museums so calculate well before you buy the all inclusive ticket.
Personal recommendation: Pergamon Museum! (on the picture)
Don’t miss out Museumsinsel! I’m sure you’ll love it!
Enjoy and till next time,
