The museums of Berlin reflect the city’s complex historical background; from antiquity to the present and beyond, they are dedicated to the most various cultural themes, from archaeology to contemporary art, from history to modern architecture and design.
Some of the most renowned institutions are located on Museuminsel, an island situated in the heart of the city, in the middle of the Spree river, and possibly the place you should not miss in Berlin. The Museuminsel area is currently undergoing a major project of renovation and urban redevelopment aimed to unify all its museums into a coherent ensemble with a view to make it one of the world’s largest and most advanced cultural districts.
Yet, we suggest you take your time and visit also other extraordinary cultural venues across the capital of Germany – such as those located around and inside the Charlottenburg Palace, and in the Kulturforum area -, or the acclaimed Jewish Museum designed by Daniel Libeskind, the equally impressive Topography of Terror, and the outstanding Bauhaus design museum.
