I visited here at weekend with my wife. Prior to our visit I considered just seeing either the "Old" or "New" Museum but I couldn't decide on which was best. They do a joint ticket to see both (this offers a small discount) so we opted for that. It was an enjoyable visit. If I am honest, I preferred the... More

Well worth a visit if you have a few hours as this is a very extensive exhibition. Worth using the listening device that provides the extra information you might find interesting.

Some very impressive pieces of history. It was a great place to visit with several museums close by. It is a big museum with plenty to admire.

The atention from the guards is awful. Totally unpolite and disrepsectful. and the Museum is not that good either.

The Neues Museum is one of the major attractions at Museum Island in Berlin. The museum houses a collection of Egyptian, pre-historic and early history artefacts. Closed at the beginning of WWII and heavily damaged during the bombings of Berlin, the Neues was only reopened to the public in 2009. Today it can be visited from 10am to 6pm daily... More

I am interested in ancient history and went primarily to see the bust of Nefertiti. It did not disappoint. But the museum is so much more. Simply amazing to be able to see the artifacts and relics of the past - including skulls of the homo sapiens and Neanderthal man Nd the gold hat!

The Neues is a must see museum for anyone with even the slightest interest in ancient art and civilizations. We spent several hours here and as with any major collection we only scraped the surface. A very worthwhile visit which we greatly enjoyed. This museum contains many exhibits which are world "must sees" like Nefertit's bust and the Golden Hat,... More

A fantastic museum if you love ancient history! The Egyptian collection is really amazing. I was mesmerised with the sarcophagus collection & burial art. Lots of really old & interesting things to look at!

Thank Kor P

Staying in Mitte

Neighbourhood Profile
The centre 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 neighbourhood’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.
