The inside story

Berlin’s Museum Island owes its name to the fact that the precious collections of five museums really are located on an island – in the arms of the River Spree, which meanders through the city center. Where once upon a time harbor buildings and industrial halls stood, today imposing buildings from the 19th and 20th centuries arise, turning the island into one of Berlins’ most famous landmarks.

Recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1999, the so-called Museumsinsel is comprised of five renowned German museums showcasing an enormous range of art, spanning from Ancient Egypt to 19th century Europe. Six thousand years of human history are waiting to be explored, with each museum offering a different slice of history.

The Pergamon Museum is the star of the show with its awe-inspiring architectural facades and gates from ancient worlds. Renowned for the Pergamon Altar and the Ishtar Gate of Babylon, its newest attraction is the 360-degree panorama 'Masterpieces from the Ancient Metropolis by Yadegar Asisi'. The panorama turns an ancient world into reality, allowing visitors to travel back in time and to experience the original location of the Altar itself.

The Altes Museum is the oldest complex in the area (built in 1830) and contains mainly Greek and Roman antiquities as well as parts of the rare collection of antiques by Frederick Wilhelm II.

The Neues Museum is known for its prehistoric and Egyptian collection including the legendary bust of the Egyptian Queen Nefertiti.

The Alte Nationalgalerie focuses on the Romantic and Impressionists period; a collection containing the most important German art works.

The Bode Museum showcases sculptures and other works of late antique and Byzantine art.
