Five museums all for one ticket. It would take over a day to see the museums and a lifetime to sort through all the sights and the knowledge that you gain from visiting the museums and the Berlin Cathedral which requires a separate ticket. Just wandering around the island is a treat.

This is a UNESCO item, where you can find a lot of interesting museums. You can go to 1 museum for 14 Euros, or you can take a pack of 5 museums only for 18 Euros. I did not have enough time to visit everything there, because complex is huge and you literaly need the whole day to see everything... More

If you are a museum lover, this is the place to go. The most notable museum would be Bode museum, which closes on Mondays. Inside one gets to see ancient sculptures and paintings, coins and medals, antiques and Byzantine arts. We were curious as to the lone man figure, looking at the museum. Great place to take a photo would... More

Lovely place to see in Berlin. Nice for exploring and getting away from the main tourist hub. Would recommend

What can I say: one of the most important museum areas in the world, if not the most important. Expert to spend many days, or weeks if you intend to see everything.

Lovely area, by the river. A good selection of museums, we did not go in but spent a long time around the area. Imposing buildings and deciding which museums to go to on our next visit. The Cathedral was enormous and imposing and very photographic. The crypt is available to visitors as is a walk around the dome, well worth... More

This is a great place to visit, the museums are very well kept and full of interesting artefacts. When we visited museum island there was a snow storm and it was absolutely stunning with a fresh blanket of snow on the ground. It's an ideal area of Berlin to go on a walk and take in some beautiful sights.

Thank Raggett20

Staying in Mitte

Neighbourhood Profile
The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighbourhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
