About: Museum Island

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.

Berliner Fernsehturm, also known as the Berlin TV Tower, was constructed in the 60s by the administration of the German Democratic Republic (GDR). Standing at 368 meters-high, it's the tallest structure in Germany and easily visible throughout most of Berlin.

The popular Pergamon Museum in Berlin is a great solution to a first world problem; it was built because there wasn't enough room in the nearby Bode Museum for all its artistic and archaeological relics. Construction carried on even through WWI and the great inflation of the 1920s. The then completed Pergamon was also badly damaged at the end of WWII (though fortunately its contents escaped damage).

The Neues Museum reopened in 2009, after extensive renovations. Since then, it has attracted more than a million visitors per year. It houses two major collections.

This highly interactive museum lets visitors feel what it was like to live behind the wall - in the DDR (Deutsche Demokratische Republik). It chronicles, via video and film, daily life as it was under Communism. The museum also includes hundreds of ways to help you experience life behind the iron curtain, including watching East German TV shows, being 'bugged', voting in a (rigged) election and taking a (simulated) car ride in an iconic Trabi.

Designed by Polish-American architect Daniel Libeskind, the Jewish Museum Berlin is one of the German capital's most iconic buildings. More than a repository of Jewish cultural history (although it certainly is that too), the building's startling architecture and design are central to the museum experience itself. The place is full of symbolic spaces that reflect the lived reality and history of German-Jews.

The Gemäldegalerie is an art gallery located close to the south-east corner of the Großer Tiergarten in Berlin. The museum houses the major works of the Berlin State Museums, including a number of masterpieces from the 13th-18th centuries by German masters. The nearest station is U Potsdamer Platz.
