This pass gets you into all the main buildings, including the Museum of Decorative Arts (Kunstgewerbemuseum), the Museum of Prints and Drawings (Kupferstichkabinett), and the Gemäldegalerie (Picture Gallery). Get one pass to see them all.
After WWII many of Berlin's finest cultural institutions ended up behind the Wall in Soviet-controlled East Berlin. Therefore, not long after, expressionist architect Hans Scharoun began work on a complex to replace them. His Kulturforum quickly became the cultural hub of West Berlin. It's full of artistic and cultural institutions, and well worth a visit.
The Gemäldegalerie, with its collection of Old Masters, showcases masterpieces by Albrecht Dürer, Jan van Eyck, Raphael, Botticelli, Titian, Caravaggio, Peter Paul Rubens, Rembrandt, and Johannes Vermeer.
The Kupferstichkabinett (Museum of Prints and Drawings) is a haven of artistic sketches, drawings, books, and prints. The Kunstbibliothek is one of the world’s largest museum libraries. Everything from archaeology to zoology is covered here.
If you hunger for art, education, and culture, you'll find it here!
