IF you like museums... you should visit here. Get the all museum pass. I only had a day, and I basicly sprinted through the Art Museum and the Egypt Museum.. Could have done a day in each one. And I totally missed the other museums and the Berliner Dome...

This is a great walk and if you like architecture..,, just worth the stroll. I'm so glad it is unesco listed. Such magnificent history.

I have decided to walk by the Spee River all the way to the Museum Island, and it was the best thing I could do even If it was cold and snowy. It's an amazing view, building and museum itself.

Five museums on one island. We got the day ticket works out much cheaper. Only got to three of the Five Museums ( we started about 1 o'clock) there is that much to see here. If you like history and art you wont be disappointed. Go early, stay late and make a day of it.

Even if I am not a museum0liker, it was great to visit this island and museums on it. I've found them less amusing than Ermitage in St.Peterburg, but nevertheless it was nice.

Berlin didn't get my attention until this stop. It's really a lovely place to spend a day at. Just stroll around in this beautiful setting.

We only visited one museum (Bode) because we spent so long in there, enjoying the space and the artefacts, that there was no time to visit the other amazing buildings on this unique "island"

Five museums all for one ticket. It would take over a day to see the museums and a lifetime to sort through all the sights and the knowledge that you gain from visiting the museums and the Berlin Cathedral which requires a separate ticket. Just wandering around the island is a treat.

This is a UNESCO item, where you can find a lot of interesting museums. You can go to 1 museum for 14 Euros, or you can take a pack of 5 museums only for 18 Euros. I did not have enough time to visit everything there, because complex is huge and you literaly need the whole day to see everything... More

Staying in Mitte

Neighbourhood Profile
Mitte
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.
