Top sights in Berlin
Museum Island is worth a visit for the architecture alone, with Berlin's biggest and best exhibits shared between colossal structures that include the city's old cathedral. Here are some of the highlights among the various collections!
The Pergamon Museum boasts ancient monumental treasures such as the Ishtar Gate and Market Gate of Miletus. Unfortunately, the Pergamon itself is closed for renovations until 2019!
One of the largest collections of Ancient Roman silver was discovered by Prussian soldiers in Hildesheim, Germany. Dating back to 1AD, see it in all its glory at the Altes Museum.
On display at the Neues Museum is one of Ancient Egypt's most recognizable artifacts. It provides remarkable insight into the civilization's royal and artistic cultures.
Among the Bode Museum's impressive collection of Byzantine art is this haunting 10th-century ivory relief of 40 soldiers frozen to death under the persecution of Licinus I.
Not a real "Eisenwalzwerk" of course, but one of Adolf Menzel's most brutally atmospheric paintings. It's exhibited alongside many German masterpieces at the Alte Nationalgalerie.
All the museums are open from 9:00AM to 6:00PM, and until 8:00PM on Thursdays. They are closed on Mondays except for the Pergamon Museum and Neues Museum which are open all week. If you can't decide between exhibitions, consider starting with a walking tour of the area to learn more about the buildings themselves, or get free tickets for 3 days with the Berlin Museum Pass!

What people are saying about Museum Island
It was difficult to convince the people working there that the ticket was valid, I'm not sure if they were looking for a barcode to scan. There was no boat ride and I couldnt even get on the Route B bus because they said it was not valid.
It would be nice if the the duration of the pass could be extended to a 4-6 day option since there are so many interesting museums to visit. It would also be nice if the option to arrange a timed visit in order to avoid the lines (through the tourist information offices) could be arranged in advance by e-mail. In any case we are gratefull for the existing system that contributed to an unforgetable visit to your butiful city.
I have limited mobility and using the hop on hop off bus tour allowed us to view as many of the main attractions as I believe possible. Berlin is a lovely City and I enjoyed the break thoroughly.
I wish we had more time to see the museums but in 2 days we managed to go to the Pergamon, alto, Nueces and the Knoblauches House (the house is free to anyone, so I suggest using the pass towards musuems that charge entry)
I can't recommend Kai as a guide for Berlin more highly. He was fantastic, took us places we requested, and gave us a deep and meaningful history of this wonderful city. Please ask for Kai. Amazing!!
