Museum Island (Museumsinsel)
In 1999 Museum Island (Museumsinsel in German) was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It sure deserves the distinction: this small island on the Spree has a singular collection of buildings, all filled with art and cultural artifacts.
The five museums are: Altes Museum (Old Museum), Neues Museum (New Museum), Alte Nationalgalerie (Old National Gallery), Bode Museum, and Pergamon Museum. Each museum is a world-renowned storehouse of works of significant cultural value. Taken together this is one of the finest museum complexes in the world.

Get the free audio guide, it helps a lot in the explanation of what you see. The girl handing out the audio guides was quite nice; the rest of the staff were professional, although not necessarily friendly.
